I'd be interested to know if this attitude is the same with engineers and other members of the design team. Given how they are acknowledged as better at running business' it would suggest that this doesn't happen. I rather think it does though.
...and what of the architects? I don't know the circumstances behind this scheme so couldn't say whether it is justified or not but isn't this also a criticism of the architect and not just the developer?
So, presumably those architects designing these buildings can be accused taking the same 'dirty' shilling? Please can say what you think of the architects carrying out these commissions?

Comment on: Women architects paid a quarter less than men
Thanks Su- Didn't see it there! To a certain extent I have to agree with ajmh- the ons statistics given are incomplete so it is very difficult to compare them as they do. However there is enough other evidence from the AJ's own survey to back up the assertion that female architects are paid less. I know of no practice which does this but it must happen- so what are we going to do about it? A better survey would help but ultimately unless there is campaign to 'out' the practices who are paying less, I can see nothing will happen.
