Make named AJ100 Practice of the Year 2014

  • Comment

[AJ100 AWARDS] Make has won the most coveted of all the AJ100 prizes - the Practice of the Year award

The accolade, which is sponsored by Schüco, is awarded on the basis of employee satisfaction, business growth, design quality, fees per architect and a presentation to the judging panel.

The judges sought evidence that the practice’s last year had not just been good, but brilliant.

Make did well in last year’s AJ100, but even better this time around.

Financial performance has brought it back to pre-recession levels with a 28 per cent rise in UK fee income. Repeat clients abound, and the range of the projects won, in terms of their geography, typology and scale, is impressive. Excellent employment practices continue at last year’s Employer of the Year, which was listed in The Sunday Times as one of the best companies to work at for the third consecutive year. In this year’s survey, dozens of employees said no other practice could give them the same responsibility, pay or quality of design as Make, which celebrated 10 years in business last month. With 34 commissions won and 15 planning permissions achieved, this was Make’s most successful year.
