Australian Architecture practices in World top 100

Six Australian practices have clinched spots on the Building Design of UK’s World Architecture 100 list, an international ranking of firms by size (number of employees).

Australian practice Woods Bagot retained its global spot at seventh place after leaping to the position in 2014, and was named first in Australasia. It attributes these achievements to strong growth in all Woods Bagot regions, particularly in North America, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

“Our strategy for moving away from a headquartered ‘hub and spoke’ business model to a disaggregated matrix structure has meant that as a firm of Australian origin, not only is more than 60% of our revenues won outside our country of origin, over 50% is delivered outside our country of origin. We believe we may be the only firm in the top 10 largest with this profile,” said outgoing Woods Bagot Managing Director Ross Donaldson.
