Today it has been announced that Jomas Associates MD and Founder, Roni Savage, has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal British Insititute of Architects (RIBA) in recognition of her contribution to architecture.
The exceptional RIBA Honorary Fellowships are designed to recognise individuals who are not architects, yet have made a significant contribution in the field of architecture. Their contribution will have helped to improve the “quality of design and influence the delivery of the built environment in a sustainable and creative way.”* Honorary fellowships are announced annually and Roni joins Professors Laura Allen and Mark Smout, Rhael ‘LionHeart’ Cape, Marc Dubois, Theaster Gates, Professor Sandra Halliday, Fiona Jarvis, Kenneth Kinsella, Rowan Moore, Marvin Rees, and Sheela Søgaard in receiving the prestigious award this year. You can find out more information on their achievements on the RIBA website. Previous recipients include Boris Johnson, Evan Davis, Sadiq Khan and artist Grayson Perry.
Jomas Associates is an award-winning engineering and environmental company and experts in determining value-engineered ground remediation solutions. Roni established and has grown the business for close to 11 years, working with Architects in the early stages of new developments to ensure ground issues are fully investigated and considered before construction work begins.
Roni said “What an honour, I am absolutely delighted to have been recognised by RIBA with such a respected Fellowship. When I started Jomas Associates it was important to me that the business is focused on delivery, quality and client satisfaction, it is these foundations together with a knowledgable and hard-working team that has allowed me to contribute to the field of architecture. I am also extremely passionate about diversity and inclusion, particularly in the construction and engineering industries; I feel privileged and grateful for the new opportunities that this Honorary Fellowship gives to help me strengthen this message”
