Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement


Broadway Malyan Holdings Limited and our subsidiary companies (together “Broadway Malyan”) remain committed to the principles of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to improving practices across our business and maintaining procedures and controls designed to ensure modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place in our business or supply chain globally.

This renewal of the commitment is set against an understanding of the challenges and issues facing society such as the economic/cost of living crisis, war and the continued impact of the global health crisis, appreciating how such issues can heighten the risk of exploitation, modern slavery and trafficking.


Broadway Malyan is a global architecture, urbanism and design practice dedicated to creating cities, buildings and places that will provide a lasting legacy. Through a shared design ethos, we work together to create places with a strong sense of identity where people and communities want to live, learn, shop, work and relax.

We have approximately 360 employees worldwide and operate in the United Kingdom, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and the Americas. During the 2022-23 financial year, we had a global annual turnover of £37.6 million.

Our supply chain primarily comprises of professional infrastructure consultancy providers, acting as sub-consultants. We also engage with suppliers of services for our offices, such as, facilities management, IT, insurance and office equipment.

We seek to partner with suppliers whose ethical principles align with our own. We expect our suppliers to operate fair and ethical workplaces, and share the commitment to ensuring that modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place. Our standard form sub-consultant contracts include, where possible, a contractual provision ensuring compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.


We have policies which govern modern slavery and human trafficking, and highlight the importance of proper management of recruitment, and cover the standards we expect of our employees, including our whistleblowing procedures.

These policies reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, and include steps to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business and or our supply chains.


Our Risk, Audit & Legal Committee has oversight of identifying and mitigating any modern slavery risks within our supply chain and engages with parts of the business which could be more at risk. Our Risk, Audit & Legal Committee reports to the Board of Directors.

We also have in place systems to:

• Identify, assess and monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains. Broadway Malyan’s protocols for undertaking bid work and commencing new projects were reviewed and updated in 2023;

• Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains; and

• Encourage voluntary reporting and to protect whistle blowers in accordance with our global whistleblowing policy. All employees can approach the Whistleblowing Officer with any concerns.


Our work is predominantly with large developer clients to whom we provide architectural and design services, and whose businesses are transparent, visible and subject to considerable stakeholder oversight. Those businesses themselves, like Broadway Malyan, will often be required to produce a statement each year and be committed to tackling Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.

It is possible that we may be novated to building contractors during the life cycle of a project, and in light of this, we are selective and careful with regards to which companies we agree to work with or be novated to, and the terms of such engagement.

We employ highly educated and highly skilled professionals. For other roles, we ensure compliance with market standards and national minimum wage obligations. We carry out due diligence on our third party suppliers and require them to comply with all applicable laws, statutes and regulations.

We have identified that the key area of risk in our supply chain is the risk of third party Company’s employing low skilled migrant workers. We mitigate this risk by working only with reputable third parties, many of whom we have built long term and strong relationships.


In the three prior financial years and to date, we have not received any reported concerns relating to modern slavery or human trafficking.


To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business staff receive our existing policy as part of their induction package. In addition, Broadway Malyan delivers business training across all of its studios on a regular basis, incorporated within that, training on the modern slavery and human trafficking policy. Our colleagues were last trained on modern slavery principles (and Broadway Malyan’s global whistleblowing policy) in 2023.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Broadway Malyan’s modern slavery and human trafficking statement. This statement was approved by Lucy Martin, the Company Secretary, and has been authorised by the Board of Directors.
