AJ100 Ranking


Atkins’ strategy to enhance its architectural reputation appears to be paying off. Although workloads and staffing numbers are on a par with those of 2015, the period has been characterised by a number of high-profile project wins in the UK and overseas.

At home, for example, there’s a new £34 million state-of-the-art history centre in Plymouth, which is now in for planning; while the commission to design the new £23 million School of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Wolverhampton adds to a burgeoning education portfolio.

Meanwhile, in Morocco, Atkins has landed a prestigious role masterplanning a new cultural area in the capital, Rabat, which has a similar footprint to the site of the London Olympic Games. Atkins will design two of the site’s key buildings: a huge arts activity complex in a similar vein to that of Central Saint Martins in London; and the national library of archives to house the country’s cultural history.
