NEWS RIBA FUTURE TRENDS SURVEY


“Cautious optimism” among architects in January


The RIBA’s January Future Trends survey shows that overall, confidence about future workloads was “at pre-Referendum levels,” according to the RIBA. The Future Trends workload index rose in January 2017,


increasing to +24 (up from +17 in December 2016). Practices in the North of England saw the biggest increase in workload expectations, and the South of England and Wales and the West also remained “optimistic.” London practices were more cautious however with the “balance figure” in the workload index standing at +15 (unchanged from December 2016). Large practices (51+ staff) were more optimistic than medium-


sized and small practices, but practices of all sizes expected medium-term workloads to increase. While the private house and commercial sector forecasts


increased slightly, the public sector remained in negative territory at -6 and the community sector forecast fell to +1. The RIBA Future Trends staffing index made a strong recovery,


rising to +8 in January 2017 (up from +1 in December 2016). 94 per cent of practices expected their staffing levels to increase or stay the same over the next quarter. In January, medium-sized practices were again the most opti-


mistic about retaining and increasing staff (balance figure +27), followed by large practices at +25. Small practices were the least confident (balance figure +4). RIBA executive director, members, Adrian Dobson, commented


on the figures: “Optimism about staffing shows that there is a healthy employment market for salaried architects, which should continue into the spring. However, we have yet to see whether Brexit will have a significant economic impact on architects’ work in the long-term.”


BOOK


Bennetts Associates: Five Insights


A 272-page book that brings together essays by 18 architects at Bennetts Associates has been published to coincide with the practice’s 30th anniversary. Bennetts Associates: Five Insights is a collection of essays


authored by architects at all levels within the practice: from a Part 1 student to job architects and directors at the employee-owned business. The essays are followed by 10 case studies of recent proj-


ects, extending from Midland Goods Shed at King’s Cross to award-winning projects such as the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and a major new facility for Jaguar Land Rover.
