IBI Group ranked as one of UK’s largest architectural practices
DateMay 14, 2013
LONDON – For the first time IBI Group has entered the AJ100 as one of the top 10 architectural practices in the UK, measured by the number of architects based in the UK.
Launched in 1995 by the Architect’s Journal, a UK trade publication, the AJ100 ranking has become a mark of business success.
IBI Group’s number eight position puts it in the company of such celebrated practices as Foster + Partners (ranked #1), establishing the firm as a strong contender in the UK market.
“It’s very exciting to see IBI Group at the forefront of UK architecture,” said Mario Bozzo, IBI Group Director. “We have a very talented and dedicated team of designers across IBI Nightingale and IBI TaylorYoung. Operating as an integrated global business, we are blending this architectural capability with our intelligent systems expertise, where technology is inherent to our solution. This means the buildings and communities we design are operationally smarter, more productive and highly sustainable. This is a blueprint we will actively evolve through research and innovation.”
As part of the AJ100 survey, IBI Group’s innovative BedPod was shortlisted for the Value Excellence award. The BedPod is a fully integrated, rapidly deployable, modular patient environment suitable for retrofit and new-build projects. Currently undergoing independent in-use evaluation at Castle Hill Hospital in Hull and at King’s College Hospital in London, the BedPod was praised for its construction and clinical benefits including flexibility, patient privacy, and improved infection control.
