‘It’s easy to get caught up in business and never benchmark yourself so to win is an achievement’
Established in 1976 by Barrie Todd, Todd Architects has grown to become the largest homegrown architectural practice in Northern Ireland.
With offices in Belfast, Dublin, Manchester and London, the firm delivers projects in the local and international marketplace.
The practice has growth to employ over 70 people across the three offices, including architectural, technical, and business support teams.
Michael Edwards, finance director at Todd Architects: “We have continued to expand over the past year and during a time when many firms consolidated, during the pandemic, we made a key decision to grow, and it’s been a great success with the opening of our newest office in Manchester.
“Our turnover has virtually doubled, and we are going onwards and upwards.
“Winning this award is an unexpected recognition of the work that we’re doing. It’s easy to get sucked in with business and never compare nor benchmark your business.
“We entered this category as a litmus test to show what we do, what we do with our staff and see how it would stand up against other in a national competition so to get shortlisted was an achievement but to win, we’re delighted. Really taken aback.”
Todd Architects is frequently recognised by industry organisations and features in the Architects Journal of Top 100 UK practices over the past five years, Northern Ireland’s only entry.
