Broadway Malyan

AJ100 Ranking


This year sees a drop down the table for the 58-year-old practice following a year of project completions.

In addition to designing Waitrose’s bronze-clad 3,700m2 flagship store in Chester, 2015 saw the practice complete Macmillan Publishers’ new London headquarters and the regeneration of the former 1960s Larner Road Estate (now Erith Park) in the London Borough of Bexley. At Erith Park, Broadway Malyan created mixed-tenure affordable housing for Orbit Homes, and the practice is keen to do more of this kind of work.

Group managing director Gary Whittle says housing is ‘in the DNA’ of the company, whose founding partner John Malyan died in May this year at the age of 85.

Despite slipping seven places in the rankings and experiencing a slight fall in its total fee income to £46.2 million, the practice enjoyed award success in 2015, with its Mann Island residential development in Liverpool earning a RIBA North West Award.

Explaining the dip, Whittle admitted the global practice had been ‘susceptible’ to international volatility, pointing to oil prices, a ‘slight slowdown’ in China where it works on retail and education projects, and a political change in Brazil. However he says the practice has seen ‘more confidence’ coming in from European markets such as Spain, Portugal and Poland.

At home, he says there have been the beginnings of uncertainty in the UK market and it will be a ‘relief’ to be able to put the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU behind it.

Broadway Malyan says global uncertainty is the biggest challenge facing architects. Yet it expects profit margins to be slightly higher for its projects in 2016 compared with last year.
