Director John Morgan said “When we started completing the AJ100 Survey 7 years ago, we did it as a way of getting access to data to benchmark how we were doing compared to other great practices. We never expected to be a top 100 practice. In the first year we were amazed to even make the list, joining at No. 100. Jumping forward seven years with a ranking of No. 77 within such an amazing industry is an absolute honour. A huge thank you to all of the team at Leonard Design on this incredible achievement!”
Published annually by the Architects’ Journal since 1995, the AJ100 ranks the largest architectural practices in the UK. It is largely regarded as a key measure of success and the industry’s most authoritative list.
