Profits up one third at Stirling Prize winner

Turnover and profits were up at Stanton Williams as the 2012 Stirling Prize winner said it is increasingly being asked to carry out schemes through direct invitations.

Revenue in the year to September 2015 was up 14% to just over £8m while pre-tax profit leapt one third to £952,000.

The firm, which is one of six teams that will find out later this summer whether its design (pictured) for a new home for the Museum of London is successful, said the majority of its projects continue to be between £20 and £60 million and added: “New business success rate remained strong, with a growing number of direct invitations which were largely within the budget range and sectors we target.”

Staff levels remained flat at 95 while the salary of the highest-paid director, who is not named, was up £6,500 to just over £140,000.
