Page \ Park Architects Management Team Restructuring

Architecture firm Page\Park has reached another milestone towards its evolution into an employee-owned practice with a restructure of its management team.

The Glasgow-based business transferred to an employee ownership model three years ago and has been implementing the next part of its transition by appointing Karen Pickering to the role of chair of the board and Andrew Bateman as managing director.

Karen Pickering has been with the office for 25 years and is well respected in the profession for her enthusiasm and support for exciting architecture across a wide range of fields.

Andrew Bateman has been with Page\Park for 16 years and has become well known for his ability to guide and realise complex and creative projects. For the past two years Andrew has taken the role of finance director on the board and the extension of this role into that of managing director will provide a steady hand overseeing the operational and financial management of the practice as it seeks to evolve and respond to new challenges.

This Glasgow architecture practice was established in 1981 by David Page and Brian Park who will remain on the board as part of a collaborative management model.

Outgoing chair Brian Park said: “The time has come for the next chapter in the Page\Park journey. Karen Pickering has been with the company for 25 years and is well respected in the profession for her enthusiasm and support for exciting architecture across a wide range of fields. That energy and drive to ensure the best possible architectural outcomes will continue in her new leadership role as chair of the practice.”

Glasgow Architects Have Designs on More Growth after Becoming Employee-Owned

Business transforms from traditional architectural partnership into 40-strong practice owned by its employees

11 Dec 2013 – A Glasgow architectural practice whose turnover has risen 30 per cent over the past two years has designs on more growth after becoming employee-owned.

Page\Park Architects – which employs 40 and now turns over £3.5m – has become employee-owned, 32 years after it was established by founders David Page and Brian Park in 1981.

David Page:
Page\Park Architects

The firm – which has worked on iconic projects such as the Lighthouse, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Rosslyn Chapel and Collegelands in Glasgow – intends to develop its award-winning business, particularly across the UK and Europe.

Co-operative Development Scotland (CDS), Scottish Enterprise’s employee ownership support arm, provided initial support and guidance on ownership, governance and employee engagement.

Founders David Page and Brian Park remain with the business. Head of architecture David Page commented: “Over the last year we have transformed from a traditional architectural partnership into a 40-strong employee-owned company. The journey, which began five years ago, has been an exciting one and we are looking forward to delivering more exceptional work for our clients in years to come.

Page\Park Architects

“Now, when you speak to anyone in Page\Park, you are speaking to someone with a share in the future of the practice, a belief in its values and a commitment to them: a shared optimism. We are following in the footsteps of the likes of Arup and John Lewis, who have quietly trail-blazed employee ownership over many years.

“We have always been a very collaborative organisation so employee ownership – as well as helping us plan for the long-term, including succession – is just a logical extension of our business model.”

Sarah Deas, chief executive of CDS, said: “Creating a business environment where everyone shares not just financial investment but emotional involvement might seem implausibly ambitious. But with employee ownership, all parties have a genuine say in how a business is operated, giving everyone a meaningful stake in their organisation.

“Page\Park’s ethos has always been very collaborative. It has been a pleasure to help them embed that spirit of co-operation in their ownership structure and help root this exciting business firmly in Scotland.”

Page\Park Architects

In addition to support from CDS, Page\Park was advised by Shirlaws on building an effective business model while Baxendale advised on the design of the new trust ownership model, setting up its governance systems and further development of its employee engagement practices.

In Scotland, employee-owned businesses employ more than 8000 people and account for a combined annual turnover of just under £1bn. The number of employee-owned businesses headquartered in Scotland has doubled since 2009.

Examples of other employee-owned businesses in Scotland include paper and board manufacturers Tullis Russell, engineering consultants Arup, manufacturing firm Clansman Dynamics and animal feed manufacturer and agricultural merchant Galloway & MacLeod.

About CDS
Co-operative Development Scotland (CDS) is the arm of Scottish Enterprise working in partnership with Highlands and Islands Enterprise that supports company growth through collaborative and employee ownership business models.

An employee-owned business is one in which the employees hold the majority of the shares either directly or through an employee benefit trust. Selling to employees allows owners to manage their exit and achieve fair value whilst safeguarding the long term future of the company. Employee ownership gives employees a meaningful stake in their organisation together with a genuine say in how it is run. It roots business in Scotland, drives performance and delivers economic wellbeing.
