Mental Health Awareness week 2021
From the rugged Jurassic Coast, to the snow covered peaks of the Highlands of Scotland, Oberlanders staff were connecting with nature, as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.
We challenged ourselves to virtually walk/run/cycle the stunning North Coast 500. And we smashed it! Together we travelled 650 miles in one week.
So important for our mental health, to spend time outside and enjoy nature in its many, many forms.
We are delighted to announce that as of the 1st May, David McNabb and Mark Pettie have both been promoted to Senior Associate and Bikem Korkuter has been promoted to Senior Architect.
Initially joining Oberlanders as a Part II Assistant in 2011, David is currently leading several of our residential projects.
