Our history dates back to 1906 with the founding of the Walker & Gillette partnership in New York.
The UK practice was founded in London in 1972, and in 1988 became listed on the Official List of the London Stock Exchange under the name of Aukett Associates. The Group transferred to the Alternative Investment Market in April 2006 following the reverse takeover of Fitzroy Robinson Ltd (est. 1955) and renamed itself as Aukett Fitzroy Robinson Group Plc.
In 2013 the company acquired Swanke Hayden Connell in the UK, (the successor to Walker & Gillette), and renamed under the current brand of Aukett Swanke Group Plc.
Our architecture studios operate in a variety of arrangements including wholly owned subsidiaries, joint ventures, associate and licensee businesses.
In 2023 we acquired technology systems integrator Torpedo Factory Group and workplace technology business Anders+Kern. This marked an enhancement of our strategy, creating a listed Smart Buildings group. With a revitalised management team we are demonstrating both organic and acquisitive growth, building recurring revenues, and setting the foundation for improved shareholder returns.
