Last Thursday, 11th May, two of our team - Magnus Strom and Emma Ward-Lambert - travelled up to Bristol to attend the RICS Awards - Southwest region.
Our project, The Quest, was entered into the Residential category and was up against some great individual houses, as well as multi-residential schemes. We were hoping for a commended mention as we were up against some stiff competition in such a varied category. This just made the announcement of The Quest as the overall winner of the category an even bigger and more wonderful surprise! It was very unexpected, especially as it wasn't just a single house category.
We are enormously proud of The Quest, and feel very lucky to have been blessed with such fantastic clients, who are delightful to work with but also had such a great vision and allowed us to create this home for them.
We may have designed The Quest, but it would never have come into being if it hadn't been for the great companies that we work with who make it a reality. We would like to give huge thanks to Matrod Frampton, Barton Engineers, Calcinotto Consulting Engineers, MCB Civil Engineering and Stockdale.
Finally, we would like to give thanks to RICS for a very enjoyable and memorable evening, and to the judges for their consideration, understanding of the project and making us winners.

The Quest is entered into some other upcoming awards, so we are keeping everything crossed that we will have reason to celebrate again in the near future!
