Aukett Fitzroy Robinson is an architect, design and planning services business. It was formed by the merger of Aukett Group and Fitzroy Robinson at the end of March 2005. By merging the two companies and creating a larger and more financially sound group the business has a better chance of winning work on larger projects. Clients include Royal Bank of Scotland, Land Securities, Arlington, Norwich Union and Diageo. The group has offices in Continental Europe, including Poland and Russia. Chief executive Nicholas Thompson originally ran the Fitzroy Robinson business. He closed Aukett's former head office and made other cost savings when the companies merged.
