LONDON / AGILITYPR.NEWS / November 28, 2019 / East Sussex company recognised at glittering awards ceremony in London
East Sussex based Civil engineers, HOP Consulting, has scooped the title Design Consortium Legacy Award at a glittering awards ceremony in London.
HOP Consulting was one of two companies shortlisted for the prestigious accolade at Willmott Dixon’s annual awards, which recognises its industry partners.
The event entitled ‘Powered By The Best 2019’ was held at OXO Tower in London, and was attended by 150 people representing a vast number of Willmott Dixon’s industry suppliers.
The awards were hosted over a three-course lunch at the Harvey Nichols OXO Tower Restaurant. There were nine categories at stake, with separate winners in six of the awards to recognise the outstanding achievements of their supply chain and design consortium partners.
Adam Humphrey, Director, said: “We were honoured to be invited as guests to Willmott Dixon’s award ceremony in London. We never expected to win our category so we were both shocked and delighted to receive this award.
“We have an established and amazing working relationship with Willmott Dixon so receiving this recognition means so much to all of our team. The trophy will have pride of place in the office. “

The awards give thanks and recognition to the great work of our partners, and we would like to congratulate (Company name) once again for winning their category.”
