“Our goal is simple — to improve the quality of the world around us and, in doing so, improve people's lives” says Ryder Architecture.

Established in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1953 by two entrepreneurial architects, the pair first met in the office of Berthold Lubetkin – the creator of the world-renowned ‘penguin pool’ at London Zoo – an icon of modern architecture.

Ryder now has a team of over 300 passionate people operating in Newcastle, London, Glasgow, Liverpool, Hong Kong, Vancouver, and Amsterdam – all reinforced by global connectivity of the Ryder Alliance.

By the nature of its business Ryder has identified environmental awareness as an urgent topic in which it plays an important role. It wants sustainability to be embedded across the practice, with a goal to be net zero in its business operations by 2025 and to be delivering net zero whole-life carbon projects by 2030.

The company's dedicated sustainability team consists of people with a building physics and environmental engineering background, whose focus is on improving the impact of its projects and business operations. It also has an environmental group, which comprises 16 people from across the practice with representation from all regions. The group acts as a sounding board and conduit out into the teams.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity (ED&I) is embedded within Ryder’s culture, with the company committed to sharing ideas, actions, and resources across teams and within its approach. Its ongoing efforts include a dedicated board of representatives committed to improving and evolving its ED&I strategy.

At Ryder we have been passionate about our people since we first introduced our team structure, benefits such as profit share and sabbaticals in 1994. We place great emphasis on making a difference both individually and collectively. Our Ryder360 programme, ran by colleagues across the practice, offers opportunities for personal growth, moments for wellbeing and giving back. Whilst our inclusivity training has led to the introduction of gender pronouns and a greater appreciation of equality and diversity within the business.
