Several of the team attended the annual AJ100 awards gala in central London yesterday evening where it was announced that Corstorphine & Wright has risen to number 22.
Published each year, the much-anticipated AJ100 identifies the UK’s largest architecture practices in terms of number of architects employed. The survey also looks at the diversity of team and celebrates an individual practices’ growth, the size and scale of the projects being worked on and those leading the way on sustainability.
The practice first entered the AJ120 in 2015 at number 116 and we were proud to crack the top 25 only five years later. Since then, Corstorphine & Wright has grown considerably, not only in staff numbers but also in studio locations, diversity, and scale of projects we are undertaking. This is reflected in our rise up the AJ100 table.
In the past year, we established two new studios in Tamworth and Newcastle. Not only do these studios further our commitment to those regions but also introduced health experts who are leading on incredible projects in acute, primary, senior living and community healthcare. Other highlights include:
- Numerous high profile planning approvals, project appointments and scheme completions across a multitude of sectors.
- Commitments to the Environment and Sustainability through internal initiatives, an ISO14001 certification and installing Karen Crowe as Head of ESG
- The promotion of Suzanne Ross to Head of Operations, to head up UK-wide operations across the practice
- Strengthening our approach to digital technology by appointing Neil Carter as Head of Digital Technology
- National and regional award nominations and successes.
None of this would be possible without the incredible team of talent that makes up Corstorphine & Wright. We wish to sincerely thank everyone including all our clients and consultants for their commitment and hard work.
