The Aura Team – Celebrating the Buildings We Love

In one of last weeks blog posts (here), we shared with you all the wonderful project which the intellects at Historic England have created – “Celebrate the Buildings You Love.”

This awesome project encouraged us all at the Aura office (present today), to take the Quiz and find our “Architectural soulmate”! Take the quiz here!


Shared with you below, results from the Aura staff members in the office today:



Our Directors answers, Craig Liddle, revealed about him a very eclectic mix!




Simon Buckingham, our Commercial Director joined him in being served an “Eclectic Mix”!





Gary Shea our Contracts Manager has been labelled with “Brutalist Architecture”…






Ken Foster, our estimating manager would have fit right in with Henry VIII!





So would Jonathan Western – our estimator! And we don’t mean because of his 6 wives!





Office Manager Pam Black received news that Georgian Architecture is where happiness truly lies.






Administrator, Katie Barnes learned today why no relationship has worked out for her so far… because her true soulmate must be, Victorian Architecture.



Thank you, Historic England, for the information shared and the fun it provided our office with.
