Since founding in 2016 there has been steady growth for studioshaw in turnover, project delivery client base and profile.
We doubled our turnover in 2017/18. We grew from 3 employees to 5, plus 2 part time. We completed two permanent projects and 1 temporary one and received repeat commissions from three clients who we value.
We won 3 significant commissions which allowed the practice to grow and develop significantly, including a 200 seat theatre in East London. Our HB Reavis project was won in an open competition and resulted in the largest fee earning project for us to date. Kindred was a challenging brief and programme and delivered on time and on budget.
We have acquired and fitted out our own office space, in a ground floor unit in Shoreditch. We have a shopfront window, display our work and importantly a door to the pedestrian street, which we leave open.
Our instagram feed has grown to 1300 followers. We attended MIPIM where Mark wrote the daily blog for the Architects Journal and we were represented on the RIBA stand. In this period we also attended a number of key industry events including attending the RIBA Gorilla Tactics Conference, the AJ Summit, MIPIM, Propski, and became members of the NLA.
We continue to develop the practice processes. These include quarterly staff reviews, building visits and a cultural programme which includes monthly Friday night events. We have become sponsors of Architecture LGBT, an RIBA organisation.
