We became an Employee Owned Business on 1 December 2013. Over the previous year we moved from being a traditional architectural partnership into a forty strong employee owned model which combines the dynamic of a lively and creative collection of design groups, linked together by the strength of collaboration, efficient working, shared values and with the administrative strength of a common base.
In so many fields of life the paramount role of the team, with each contribution being vital, has challenged traditional hierarchical models of management and, in our view, ownership. If society demands that each of us take responsibility for our roles, then surely ownership should respond likewise. So 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. Our models are exemplary – Arup and John Lewis who have quietly trail-blazed this concept over many years.
