Erick van Egeraat Architects goes under

  • Comment
Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects has called in the receivers, according to reports in the Dutch press

The 52-year-old architect, who has pointed the finger at project delays for the collapse, is no stranger to financial turmoil.

Four years ago van Egeraat was forced to put his London office into voluntary liquidation blaming the ‘UK planning system for making it difficult for foreign architects to run offices in Britain.’ (AJ 13/01/2005).

However the latest problems appear to be European-wide and it is understood the Rotterdam-based firm will close its outpost in Budapest and the future of the offices in Moscow, Prague and the re-opened London studio, remains unclear.

Newspaper Cobouw reported that solicitors Bok Roijers Gasse Ling will handle the insolvency which is likely to affect around 150 staff.

Nobody answered when the AJ tried contacting Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects's London office in Gray’s Inn Road.

Among the projects on the company’s drawing board included a masterplan for Canning Town and a waste disposal unit shaped like a church.
