We are advocates of partnering

In your article 'baa plans expansion of Stansted - without Foster' (aj 22.10.98), you said that we did not apply to become a 'framework supplier'.

The comment surprised us because it is not true. We were never approached by baa to act as architect for the expansion. We applied to be a framework architect but were not accepted.

We have a strong record of partnering, going back to the early 1970s when we pioneered partnering with Pilkington Glass and mag on the Willis Faber Dumas headquarters. Partnering was the philosophy that allowed the new Hong Kong airport to be built to the client's cost and programme constraints - a partnership that included baa.

More recently, the managing director of Bovis quoted our project for the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow as a classic example of the benefits of partnering.
