Sheppard Robson

AJ100 Ranking


When Alan Shingler, the partner at Sheppard Robson in charge of residential work, was interviewed for this publication last year, he was celebrating the fact that the team had grown by 47 per cent over the previous 12 months.

This time the growth has been slightly less dramatic, but still impressive. With 38 architects added, the total is now 194, keeping the practice in fourth place.

‘It has been a good year,’ Shingler reflects. Growth has slowed in London – particularly this year with the threat of Brexit – but expansion has come from other offices, with, for example, a large studio opening in Glasgow on the back of the £63 million Learning and Enterprise Campus in Knockroon, East Ayrshire.

The practice has also continued to diversify into new areas of expertise. ‘We have also started growing market share in other typologies,’ Shingler says. ‘There has been quite a lot of growth in retail and hotels. We are also keen to ensure that we maintain the balance of conceptual work and pre-planning and delivery.’
