London's Architecture Sector - Update 2018

Date published: 
13 March 2018

Some of the key points from Working Paper 93 include:

  • London’s architecture sector had 4,515 workplaces (in 2017) and contained approximately 26,200 jobs (in 2016).
  • Around half of these jobholders were female and one-third had a non-UK nationality in 2016.
  • The architecture and engineering sector – the lowest level of disaggregation possible – had a lower proportion of jobholders who identified as black, Asian or any other minority ethnic (BAME) than the London all-sector average in the 2014 to 2016 period. 
  • In terms of gross value added (constant 2015 prices), London’s architecture sector produced £1.9 billion of output in 2016. That makes it similar in size to London’s Postal and courier activities and Motor trades sectors. The architecture sector has also grown 7.7 per cent per annum on average between 2009 and 2016 which was a faster rate of real growth than the London average.
