MaccreanorLavington has been awarded the AJ100 Business Breakthrough of the Year award
MaccreanorLavington set up a sister company, MLA+, in 2012 to focus on sustainable urban design in emerging markets. MLA+ now has a staff of 15, a turnover of £1.4 million that is growing at 30-40 per cent a year, and offices in locations including Russia, China and South America.
‘How established practices are responding to a volatile world is a measure of their resilience and success,’ said our judges. ‘MaccreanorLavington’s approach goes above and beyond being a good business. The model’s emerging success is an innovative way of growing and of building resilience. It bridges the gap between large and small practices, and is a way of infiltrating markets while limiting risk and getting international expertise.’
