PFI jobs come good to turn the tide for Percy Thomas

  • Comment

The Percy Thomas Partnership has doubled turnover to £6 million, made a 'modest profit' and added 30 people in the six months since it went into receivership, according to chief executive John Rudge.

Speaking at the MIPIM property conference in Cannes, where the firm took space on the Architecture 98 stand, Rudge said much of the turnabout in good fortune was due to a list of PFI jobs - particularly hospitals - finally coming good. He said the firm was working at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, on a telecom tower refurb in Cardiff, and has completed the Haven of Hope Hospita l in Hong Kong . Jobs in the offing include the refurbishment of the MoD building in Whitehall, if it beats the other shortlisted team, which includes HOK Cecil Denny Highton and Kvaerner. PTP has teamed up with Sheppard Robson, Donald Insall, Rolfe Judd and Taylor Woodrow. They submit on 8 April and expect a decision towards the end of November.

PTP is also designing the Wales Millennium Centre, now without the Museum of Wales element - but it is hopeful of designing a new-build building for the nearby museum, perhaps with Heritage Lottery money.

Thirty other practices represented on the Architecture '98 stand included Harper Mackay, GMW, Chassay Last Architects, Weston Williamson, Hudson Featherston and Novo Architects, which is working on a scheme for Walthamstow Central station.
