Practice now employs 1,300 staff 

BDP has announced turnover of £106.8m, the highest figure in the architect’s 58-year history.

The firm also posted pre-tax profit for the year to the end of June 2019 of £9.3m, up nearly 6%.

Operating profit came in at £9.5m, up just over 9%.

BDP, which last week got the go-ahead for its plans for a major new treatment and research facility at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton (pictured), said it had seen “significant growth at home and abroad” in the past year.

It opened a new studio in Singapore last May and in February this year bought Toronto-based practice Quadrangle Architects.

Chief executive John McManus said: “Our growing international network of studios…ensures that BDP will become increasingly influential in a global marketplace.”

Employing more than 1,300 staff, up from 922 last year thanks mainly to the Toronto deal, BDP said it was aiming to generate approximately 70% of its turnover from its UK operations in the next three years.

BDP was bought by Japanese engineering giant Nippon Koei more than three years ago for just over £102m.
