John McAslan + Partners Queen’s Award News

Announced today, Thursday 21 April 2022 – John McAslan + Partners has today been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade for 2022. This prestigious Award recognises John McAslan + Partners’ excellence in achieving outstanding growth internationally, whilst remaining true to the business’s core values of design excellence, with both social value and sustainability at the heart of the architectural practice’s ethos.

Since its founding in 1993, John McAslan + Partners has developed an international architectural portfolio from its design studios in London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Sydney. Particularly respected for its work in urban regeneration and renewal, the practice’s diverse international work includes a group of new civic landmark buildings and landscapes which define the widely acclaimed Msheireb Quarter in Doha; the rebuilding of the iconic Iron Market in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and the on-going transformation and extension of Sydney’s historic Central Station.

Central to the practice’s ethos is its commitment to societal and educational issues which includes the building of low cost, environmentally sustainable rural schools in Malawi and an on-going series of educational bursaries for architectural students and recent graduates.
