Number cruncher

We are disappointed to find that in the buildings section of this year's Consultants File we have been wrongly listed. Our fees rendered for 96/97 were £24 million - which would put us high in the table. Instead you have quoted our fees as £8 million - putting us 12th.

This is misleading, as the Consultants File is used as a reference by clients, and indeed ourselves, to qualify our position. Buildings is our largest market.

We would be extremely interested to find out what went wrong - as I am sure would many of our peer group in the table concerned.

Christopher Cole, Group Managing Director, WSP Group, Buchanan House, 24-30 Holborn London EC1N 2HS.

Editor's note

Thank you Mr Cole, and all the other consultants who have highlighted the problem with the Consultants' File buildings listing. Thanks to the wonders of computer technology we printed last year's by mistake. Below are the top 25 consultants in the buildings field for 1997/98. If you want a fuller list please fax Nicky Stubbs on (0171) 505 6667 and we'll happily send it to you.
