We were interested to read your charts of architectural practices ranked by number of qualified architects, but dismayed to see that Campbell and Arnott is described as one of the Scottish 'casualties' (aj 30.3.00).
In fact, in 1999 the number of our architects registered with arb was 14 (15 if you count our consultant) and we should know as we paid their subscriptions. That would put us in joint ninth place, and far from being in demise, 1999-2000 has shown our greatest expansion in many years. We hope to increase our 'casualty rate' in the next 12 months!
