A staggering 92 per cent of architects believe 2002 will be a positive year economically for the profession, according to an AJ survey. The mood was underscored by an impressive 19 per cent who believe prospects for the year are excellent. Adding to the upbeat outlook, a report from Plimsoll Publishing shows that sales for the profession climbed by more than five per cent last year and are expected to climb by 5.4 per cent this year despite the continuing economic uncertainty. Plimsoll's report also revealed that some practices were easily outstripping the average sales growth figures - 34 practices managed a 34.8 per cent minimum sales growth in 2001.

The top seven practices were: Scott Brownrigg and Turner (53.9 per cent);

John Seifert Architects (60.6 per cent);

Thorpe Architecture (214.1 per cent);

KSS Architects (42.8 per cent); Pringle Richards Sharratt (66.6 per cent); Calder Peel Partnership (173.5 per cent); and Acanthus Ferguson Mann Architects (55.8 per cent).
