35 jobs to go at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners

  • Comment

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has confirmed that 35 jobs are to go at the practice as the economic downturn gathers momentum

The practice wrote to its staff today to confirm that it had opened a period of consultation on redundancies.

It said: ‘It is clear that our current and anticipated workload no longer matches our previous expectations and we will not be able to replace the lost projects in the current resources both for our existing and anticipated workload.’

Richard Rogers added: ‘In my long career as an architect, this is one of the saddest days. The economic downturn we are experiencing is the most ruthless and wide-ranging I can remember – particularly in the architectural sector – and it is impossible for us to be immune from its effects. Projects which seemed secure three months ago are now on hold or cancelled, and competition for existing work has become far more severe.

‘As a result – and with deep and profound regret – we have been forced to make significant staff cutbacks at this time to ensure our long-term survival.’
