KHR Architecture expands its partner circle with three co-owners and appoints three associate partners. At the same time, the company is reorganised around three core business areas.
CEO Lars Kragh says:
- KHR has been through a restructuring process, during which we have been looking at ourselves and our business to lay a solid foundation for the future of KHR. The goal remains the good architecture, but a solid financial bottom line is a prerequisite. Therefore, we have chosen to focus our business around three areas where we have great expertise."
- In short, our business will now stand on three legs: one focusing on education and healthcare construction for public sector clients, another working on commercial and residential projects, primarily in the private sector, and construction consultancy as the third.
- We are expanding the group of partners by three people, two of whom are already employed by KHR today and will become an active part of the management. The third is an external partner who has proven over the past months to be a valuable sparring partner with strong commercial insight. Both new and old partners have injected capital into the company so that we once again have the necessary liquidity to do business."
-I am also very happy to announce three new associated partnerseach pointing the way to the KHR of the future. Mai Svanholt, Henrik Andersen and Morten Nøhr Frandsen are three strong candidates for future partners who can continue KHR's architectural heritage and help renew the organisation."
- I am very grateful for the trust that old, new and associated partners are showing KHR by supporting this reconstruction so wholeheartedly, and I believe that we now have a good starting point for creating architecture with people at the centre also in the next 75 years.
