AWW were honoured last night at a prestigious awards ceremony in London hosted by the Architect’s Journal magazine.

The AJ100 awards compile a list of the 100 largest architecture practices in the UK and AWW has seen its ranking grow since last year to no. 86 in the country, and were named as the South West Practice of the Year for the second year running.

This is the first time in the history of the awards that a practice has won the award twice in a row.

AWW, referred to as “one to watch” by the magazine last year, has delivered many of the South West’s modern landmarks including the South Bristol Community Hospital, the Radisson Blu hotel at Bristol’s Waterfront and Bristol University’s Merchants Venturers Building.

The AJ100 is considered the authoritative survey of the largest architecture practices in the country and a and the awards recognised and celebrated the most innovative and successful practices in what has been another challenging year for the industry.

The Regional Practice of the Year is awarded based on the survey responses of more than 1,000 AJ100 employees, who were asked about where they would most like to work, staff satisfaction, benefits, salaries and HR achievements

“AWW are delighted to have been awarded AJ100 South West Region Practice of the Year for the second year running. We believe that this is a unique achievement, and bears testimony to the hard work, commitment and talent of the architectural, technical and interior design teams” said Richard Francis, Practice Director.

Last year AWW beat stiff competition from Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Purcell Miller Tritton and Stride Treglown to take the title, and followed that up with last night’s win against BDP, HLM Architects and Purcell Miller Tritton.
