A Chiswick architect, Paul Vick, has won the West London Property and Construction Business of the Year award at the West London Business Awards.

Around 350 people were at Twickenham Stadium to see the award ceremony hosted by tennis star Annabel Croft, who lives in West London. Paul Vick Architects were also highly commended for Resilient SME (small and mid-size enterprise) Innovator of the Year.

The jurors highlighted the architect practice’s sustained commitment to low energy design, its mixed use regeneration and masterplanning work and its implementation with 100% planning permission record with new build and listed buildings.

“Honoured and humbled”

Speaking after receiving the award, Paul said:

“This important moment for us leads us to reflect that in all the intensity of the day to day and its challenges it is vital to remind ourselves we are all part of a bigger community and share so much ground.

“We are honoured and humbled. West London, ‘the most connected place in the world’, contains some of the most vibrant businesses and opportunities as we all try to carve out a sustainable future.  Many great businesses and organisations come to mind with places like Heathrow, Westfield, Chiswick Business Park, Imperial College and Brunel on our doorsteps.

“I would like to thank all our clients and my team as well as all others who continue to help through these really challenging times. It has been interesting and not always easy as the shape of our economy and our world priorities change.”
