Aukett Swanke subsidiary Veretec wins award for second year running
(ShareCast News) - Aukett Swanke Group announced on Thursday that its subsidiary Veretec had won the Architect's Journal 'AJ100 Executive Architect of the Year' award in 2017, for the second year in a row.
The AIM-traded firm said the award, which was intended to recognise "excellence within the specialist field of executive architecture", was given at a function at the Tower of London on 13 July.
It said the award citation noted two particular projects - One Love Lane in London's EC2, which was delivered with concept architects Stiff + Trevillion, and The Passage in Victoria, which was completed in collaboration with BuckleyGrayYeoman.
The judges reportedly noted "innovations" by the practice in project administration, as well as the development of processes which ultimately created more value in the projects.
They also stated that the projects "could not have been done without a deep level of trust and cooperation".
"We are delighted by this outstanding achievement and its endorsement of Veretec's work as we pursue our strategy of expanding non-traditional areas of activity in the architectural world," said Aukett Swanke CEO Nicholas Thompson.
