Clissold fails to halt Hodder's rise


Stephen Hodder has claimed that he has had the strongest financial year since he started in practice, despite the on-going publicity surrounding the Clissold Leisure Centre dispute.

The Manchester-based architect has insisted that his office's business continues to grow in the face of legal bills and costs associated with the controversy.

'One wonders what effect it has had on our business, ' he told the AJ. 'However, we will probably never know whether it has had a major effect. But what we do know is that this has been the most amazing year since I started in practice over 21 years ago.' Hodder added that the practice has been extremely successful at retaining work.

'We have had a fantastic set of months and have a series of projects including the Princes Street project in Manchester that we are really pleased with.

'Despite everything surrounding Clissold we have continued to grow and succeed, ' he added.
