Ridge Celebrates Double Success At Winchester Business Excellence Awards

11 June 2019

The Winchester team of Ridge and Partners LLP (Ridge), a multidiscipline property and construction consultancy, is celebrating a double success at this year’s Winchester Business Excellence Awards. 

Ridge scooped the Large Business Award in recognition of the growth and success of the consultancy’s Winchester office. Ridge Partner Richard Hand also picked up the prestigious Business Leader Award for his role in growing the team and guiding Ridge through a period of dynamic growth across the South Coast.

Ridge acquired Winchester-based engineering consultancy Upton McGougan in 2014 and has just completed the acquisition of another local consultancy, Gysin Warr. These strategic moves, coupled with the firm’s organic growth, means that Winchester is now comprises 14 teams of highly experienced property and construction consultants, working across a range of services and sectors.

Ridge has worked on a number of high-profile projects across the South Coast, including the Skyview student accommodation in Bournemouth, the Mayflower Theatre refurbishment in Southampton, the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth and Farnborough International Airport’s Media and Conference Centre.

The annual Winchester Business Excellence Awards celebrates the achievements of the area’s businesses, both big and small. This year’s event was held at Winchester University.

Richard Hand, Winchester Office Managing Partner for Ridge, said:

These awards are testament to the excellence, enthusiasm and commitment that the team at Ridge demonstrates every day. I opened our south coast office in 2008 with just three people and, having grown organically and through strategic acquisitions, we now employ over 80 fantastic people in Winchester and provide a full range of professional, multidiscipline property and construction services. We are absolutely delighted with the wins and I am incredibly proud of the team.
