Multi-Award Winning Night at The Grafters
A little background about Abode and the awards.
Just over four years ago I setup Abode Architecture as a limited company and made the jump to self-employed.
At the same time I attended the talk of Manchester awards to support a friend who won best IFA and entrepreneur of the year, and at this point, I thought this is something I want to aspire to.
Through joining The Boardroom shortly after my first awards night, I found out that The Grafters awards were coming up for the construction industry.
The first time I attended The Grafters I wasn't nominated for any categories and felt with me not being in business very long that I hadn't proved anything worthy of an award yet.
The awards focused me on growing the business by securing four multi-million pound new luxury dwellings in Cheshire with a very reputable developer. Joe Mayoh also joined us to help with the increased workload.
Fast forward The Grafters awards 2016 & 2017 we were nominated for multiple categories and each year won best architectural practice for a luxury dwelling which was great.
We were nominated for four categories this year and with such strong competition didn't expect to take home any awards.
To our amazement we didn't win one award, we won two on the night.
- Best Commercial Architectural Practice
- Best Overall Architectural Practice
We couldn't have won these awards without the strong small team which is me Peter, Joe, Aaron & Stephen.
We may not be as big as our competition in size or turnover, but since Abode's creation a little over four years ago we have doubled in turnover year on year which is a testament to the high level of service we provide to our clients such as Aldi and Cartime to mention a few.
We indeed are grateful for the recognition we have been given at The Grafters over the last three years and intend to get our heads down over the next year to come back even stronger at the 2019 awards.
