Architectural Practice of the Year

Winner: HNW Architects

“The firm is growing and has opened a new office in Brighton. We looked at how we could build on what we do without fundamentally diluting who we are. Brighton is an exciting move that opens new opportunities for us and enables us to move into new sectors. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve been doing a lot of work on office fit-outs and design. We continue to build our commercial property work on the south coast and to increase our foothold in education. We have a toolkit for net zero carbon, which is the backbone of everything we do.” Steve Duffy, director, HNW Architects

Commercial Development of the year

Winner: New Lane - Kingsbridge Estates

“We worked collaboratively with the local council to help ensure that when Pfizer left New Lane it was replaced by another major company, Amazon. This is a very important site for the local economy, especially through its employment opportunities. Sustainability is also an important consideration and Amazon’s logistics site was developed to handle a fleet of 800 electric vehicles.” Jeremy Sharland, development director, and Chris Fry, chief executive, Kingsbridge Estates

Commercial Landlord of the Year

Winner: Kingsbridge Estates

“We have had high occupancy rates and tenant retention, despite Covid-19 and wider economic factors that have made it difficult for tenants. As a landlord, what we do well is to fully engage with occupiers. We regularly speak directly with them and they know that if they have any issues they can approach us. By always knowing what tenants want we can make sure they renew and stay, for example, by helping them downsize in the same building.” Jeremy Sharland, development director, and Rachel Lacklison, asset manager, Kingsbridge Estates

Property Agency of the Year

Winner: Merriebank Lettings & Property Services

“When we set up the business, our objective was to be different from other agencies. We aim to provide a more personal service to tenants and landlords alike. We are also available any hour of the day, which is important. As a family-run business, we all work for each other and bring different skills to the company. We have had a very good year, including picking up one of the Isle of Wight’s biggest developments, which is fantastic for us.” Dean and Sophie Faulkner, owners, Merriebank Lettings & Property Services

We have a growth plan to double in size by 2027. We acquired Millwood Homes in the east of the region and are looking to buy more businesses.

Industrial/Logistics Property Consultancy of the Year

Winner: Lambert Smith Hampton

“We take real pride in delivering the best deals for our clients. The market has been pretty stable during the period. There is a consistent lack of supply and the south coast is fairly robust because demand outstrips supply. Rents have gone in the right direction for clients, and on some deals second-hand rents have been similar to new-build rents. One of the highlight deals for us was Dunsbury Park in Havant.” Elise Evans, director, Lambert Smith Hampton

Offices Consultancy of the Year

Winner: Vail Williams

“We’re delighted to win, especially as the award is based on data from CoStar. The office market is still really strong although there has been a flight to quality by businesses. Southampton, in particular, is proving really popular. Major deals for us included Twenty3 Brunswick, which has a BREEAM excellent rating, and we also helped Kingsbridge Estates get Charlotte Place fully let for the first time since it was built 20 years ago.” Russell Mogridge, partner, Vail Williams

Property Deal of the Year

Winner: Lush expansion to A1 & A2 Fleets Corner – Vail Williams/Goadsby

“Our expansion in Poole reaffirms our status in the local area. We are one of the biggest employers here and this development allows us to consolidate our property portfolio. It means we now have 60% of our factory portfolio in the Fleets Corner estate, where we can build our manufacturing and also support current sales and our projected growth. We are always looking for property opportunities in the local area and have a great working relationship with Vail Williams and Goadsby.” Chase Clark, manufacturing director, Lush

Property Law Firm of the Year

Winner: Lester Aldridge

“We’ve seen rapid organic growth over the period by investing in our people. We have a lot of trainee solicitors coming through the ranks, with staff numbers now over 350. I think winning this award shows our ambitions. Our ability to provide fast turnarounds that was noted by the judges is down to understanding each client’s business. One of the standout deals for us in the period was acting for the University of Southampton on a flagship project.” Mark Benham, head of real estate, Lester Aldridge

Regeneration Project of the Year

Winner: West Cliff Mansions – HGP Architects

“This was a four-year project with many challenges to overcome. We had to deal with a negative response from neighbouring residents as we were building on what had been a car park that they didn't want to lose. Many different designs were presented to overcome their concerns. The design is sympathetic to its surroundings and in keeping with the area. We also worked to improve safety and access to a school that was close to the development. Feedback from the occupants has been really positive.” Chris Callard, director, and Richard Abraham, architectural specialist, HGP Architects

Large Residential Development of the Year

Winner: Harbour Place – Barratt & David Wilson Homes

One of our biggest priorities on this project was to achieve a biodiversity net gain. We improved the land by 20% and the community now has 30.5 acres to enjoy, with extensive wildlife habitats. Like all projects, there were challenges but we always took on board local residents’ feedback and our priority on sustainability helped to bring down any barriers with them. Relationships with the community are just as important to us as building homes.” Megan Hamlyn, marketing manager, Barratt and David Wilson Homes

Workplace of the Year

Winner: Lakeside North Harbour

“One of the key developments for us this year is commencing the works to install a photovoltaic and battery storage system that will increase our sustainability and significantly reduce the energy bills of our occupiers. Another initiative has been creating the My Lakeside digital platform which enables us to improve our communications with all occupiers. We can let them know immediately about events and activities, as well as all the facilities and amenities available on our 130-acre site.” Emma Parkin, marketing manager, Lakeside North Harbour

Young Property Person of the Year

Winner: Faye Williams – Harrison Clarke

“I’m just finishing my Masters degree dissertation on the education of party wall surveyors and have given up most of my weekends for the last two years, so I’m looking forward to finishing the degree. I chose to get involved in party wall work as this is a very people-centric issue and I found that taking a different approach helps to resolve disputes quickly. Working in the healthcare sector before joining the firm helped my people skills which I now use in developing our culture and approach to customer service.” Faye Williams, senior surveyor, Harrison Clarke

The Mark Vincent Lifetime Achievement award

Winner: Russell Mogridge from Vail Williams

"This was a total surprise. Mark was a friend, so receiving this award was quite emotional for me. The property sector is a people business and Mark and I were always looking for networking opportunities. These connections are invaluable, particularly in commercial property. In this business, you’ve got to be yourself and be open and honest – after all, many clients are with you throughout your career. I also focus on mentoring youngsters coming into the profession and more widely – to inspire them to think about their career opportunities.” Russell Mogridge, partner, Vail Williams
