Property and construction consultancy Ingleton Wood has expanded its Billericay team with the appointment of Marta Holton as the office’s lead Architect.
Marta joins as an Associate Architect and will be heading up the Architectural Team, overseeing and managing projects while mentoring her colleagues including new recruits and apprentices.
She joins with 17 years of industry experience in a variety of sectors, a Master’s degree in Architecture and Urban Design, and ambitions to grow the Billericay team. In her day-to-day work Marta likes to apply her analytical approach to the project management and design and put emphasis on the Practice’s sustainability objectives.
Marta said: “Ingleton Wood is a progressive and forward-thinking company with a strong, people-focused ethos that aligns with my own personal values. I was very drawn to the Practice’s investment in their teams and multidisciplinary approach to property design and construction.
“At the Billericay office, we have such a broad range of experience and sectors under one roof. I can collaborate with sustainability advisors, surveyors, and engineers in-house to find the best solution for each client.”
Marta is overseeing and managing projects in the healthcare, education, residential and sports & leisure sectors, applying her nearly two decades of expertise to the nuances of modern construction.

“Sustainability is another key issue in the industry, and Ingleton Wood is very forward-thinking and highly driven by environmentally-conscious design solutions.
The Practice also invests in new technology like Building Information Modelling (BIM), using BIM data in facilities management for future ease of maintenance and possible contributions to the circular economy.
