AJ100 Regional Award Winner 2013
Scott Brownrigg's Cardiff office won the AJ100 Best Place to Work - Wales Award for a third consecutive year.
The win is testament to the hard work and commitment of the Cardiff team and acknowledges job satisfaction, working environment, culture and staff welfare. Surveyed employees stated 'The portfolio of work is incredible', 'The practice has the right attitude towards architecture, the environment and the user'. On working environment one employee stated 'I work with a great team whose approach is progressive and aspirational'. The practice was also shortlisted for the London and the South East region.
It also reflects another successful year for the Cardiff office, led by Group Director, Neil MacOmish, with achievements that include the completions of Chilton Trinity School in Bridgwater and Haines Court residential scheme at the Celtic Manor, planning permissions for Cardiff Pointe and the International Sports Village, the commencement on-site of Winterbourne Academy and the securing of the UTC Swindon scheme and the BREEAM Education Award for Coleg Cymunedol y Dderwen in Bridgend.
On the win Neil MacOmish said "I am extremely proud and delighted that the Cardiff office has secured the award for a third year. It is rare for an AJ100 practice to win the same award two years running, let alone three. This achievement really reflects the value we place on our employees and the quality of work that the team is delivering from this office. It is also testament to their level of commitment and hard work".
It's been an exciting and succesful year for the practice, marked by international expansion, business growrth and investments in employees and skills across all of its services - architecture, planning and interior design.
With recent openings of offices in Singapore and Zagreb and significant work in Moscow, an Edinburgh office is due to open shortly. In recognising these achievements the practice was delighted to also have been shortlisted for Practice of the Year, Fastest Growing Practice and Employer of the Year.
