Alinea has increased its 14-strong partnership by six after another year of strong growth.

Iain Parker, founding partner at Alinea, said the internal promotions were “recognition of the growth potential” of the business and the creation of a “leadership team focused on future generations”.

Those promoted to partner are Alex Hyams, Gordon Graham, Hamish Summers, Mark Day, Richard Jackson and Rob Butler.

The consultant told Building in June that it was targeting a turnover of £11.5m for the company’s current financial year – its fifth in operation – having posted a 28% jump in turnover to £10.5m over the year to May 2017, up from £8.2m.

Founded in 2013 by six former Davis Langdon and EC Harris partners, Alinea is also aiming to branch out overseas within the next five years.

The firm’s current projects include the £1.4bn revamp of Brent Cross shopping centre by Hammerson and Standard Life, the expansion of the British Library’s Kings Cross campus, which is being designed by Richard Rogers’ practice, and the regeneration of 62 acres at Silvertown in east London.

Alinea is also working on a clutch of towers in London’s Square Mile, including Lipton Rogers’ mammoth skyscraper, 22 Bishopsgate, being built by Multiplex, Mitsubishi Estate’s plans for 6-8 Bishopsgate and Singaporean investor UOL Group’s hotel tower at 150 Bishopsgate where Lendlease is believed to be carrying out work.
