International Women's Day 2023 at Ellis Williams

International Women’s Day 2023

Happy International Women’s Day 2023! To celebrate International Women’s Day 2023 at Ellis Williams Architects we are sharing a story to explore the success of Architect Jade Meeks, BA(Hons) MArch ARB.


Liverpool School of Architecture graduates including Jade recently completed The University of Liverpool’s unique teaching and performance building, The Yoko Ono Lennon Centre. The new facility includes the Tung Auditorium – a world class music performance space – together with two large lecture theatres (including the 600 seat Paul Brett Lecture Theatre), seminar rooms, café space, a public facing linear park and a new outdoor space for the University.

Jade qualified in 2018, just as the brief and commission for The Yoko Ono Lennon Centre landed following a tender competition. Jade was instrumental during the bidding and design process, as well as jointly presenting the proposals to the final interview panel.

Jade worked closely with the project associates at every subsequent stage of the project (learning and applying Revit along the way) and became the key point of contact for both client and contractor. Jade worked with the Liverpool School of Architecture (as a recent graduate) to deliver a series of presentations on the scheme as it developed as well as mentoring younger graduates within the office.

From the outset of the project, her approach and capacity for learning and development was critical to the success of the scheme – an ability to both understand the macro implications of decisions but also an eye for detail so important in a technically complex set of spaces.


Jade said:

This has been a tremendously rewarding project for me to work on. Several members of the team are alumni of the University so it was even more of a personal connection to the project than normal, with a desire to deliver something special on this site.
