Foster + Partners announce redundancies

UK-based Foster + Partners have announced that they intend to lay off nearly 100 staff.

The firm have cited uncertainty surrounding construction projects as a major factor for the redundancies following last summer’s Brexit vote.

Staff at the firm’s headquarters in Battersea, south west London will mainly be affected with the firm stating that “a cross-section of the team” will be affected. 

A spokesperson for the firm said: “Foster + Partners has grown significantly over the last two years with a record number of projects, many of which are now close to completion.

‘’This, coupled with some uncertainty in the construction market, has led us to make some adjustments to our practice, which regrettably includes some redundancies enabling us to balance numbers with our current and foreseeable workload.”

The firm has a global workforce of nearly 1,500 with 1,250 of those employed in London.

The firms London projects have included the Millennium Bridge, the Great Hall redevelopment at the British Museum and the Gherkin tower.
