Prestigious business award granted to Chapman Taylor

Chapman Taylor architects has been awarded the UK's most prestigious business award, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. Winning in the International Trade category, Chapman Taylor is the only architectural practice to win the award this year for outstanding commercial success in international trade - more than doubling overseas earnings over the three year review period - 2006, 2007 and 2008. The success comes in the same year the practice celebrates its 50th anniversary.

In addition to commercial success, Chapman Taylor met the highest standards of the Queen’s Awards’ criteria by demonstrating commitment to its presence in local markets, including active participation in local and international trade events and fostering good relations with local communities and employees. Special attention was paid to the practice’s environmental considerations - the achievement of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and other highest international sustainability and energy performance standards in commercial projects, as well as being members of the Green Building Council and having robust internal sustainability policies in place.

“We are delighted to receive this prestigious award which coincides with our 50th anniversary. I feel it is the highest form of recognition of our international team’s efforts and ability,” said Christopher Lanksbury, Director, Chapman Taylor. “We are particularly proud that our practice is made up of many different nationalities all working towards a common goal.”

Chapman Taylor’s success in international trade has also been acknowledged by regional awards, including Architect of the Year in the Central & Eastern European Real Estate Quality Awards 2007 and 2008 and the CEE Retail Real Estate Awards, as well as recently taking home the International Trade Award for London Region, sponsored by HSBC.
