Architect appears on list for first time but wealth dwarved by other construction multi-millionaires

Zaha Hadid has made her first appearance in the Sunday Times Rich List, ranked in the top 2,000 wealthiest people in Britain with a fortune estimated at £37m.

Hadid owns both Zaha Hadid holdings, her practice valued at £30m, and Zaha Hadid Design, estimated at £5m.

The paper also adds £2m on top of this in past salaries and dividends.

Other construction figures in the list included the brothers Sir Fraser and Gordon Morrison, who saw their wealth decline from £85m to £78m after Sir Fraser had to put £8m into his architecture practice RMJM to ease cashflow problems.

Shwan Al-Mulla, a London based Iraqi Kurd heavily involved in the construction work rebuilding Iraq, was the richest construction figure with £500m, putting him 151st on the list.

The wealth of Steve Morgan, chairman of housebuilder Redrow, was at £400m, £50m more than last year.

Stef Stefanou, Doyle Group chairman, also saw his fortune rise £15m to £140m.
