26 employed architects, 19% female architects, =94th position in 2014
Last year Boyes Rees, which has offices in Cardiff and London, promoted six members of staff to associate and associate director level, to strengthen its senior leadership team. This was at a time when the practice was being recognised for its work: its Postgraduate Business Centre for Cardiff University was shortlisted in the RICS Wales Awards 2015 and the Constructing Excellence in Wales Awards 2015. The practice, which works mainly in the education, healthcare, commercial, student accommodation, retail, leisure and residential sectors, has recently won the 22-storey Beckley Court student accommodation tower in Plymouth, and the £120 million refurbishment of Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr. It is also continuing its strong collaborative partnership with Royal Mail.
