Davis Langdon was judged on issues such as Customer Satisfaction, Sustainability, Innovation and Corporate Responsibility as well its work on outstanding projects such as New Street Square in London; Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool; and the RHS Bicentennial Glasshouse Project in Wisley.
Judges explained the decision for picking Davis Langdon for this prestigious award, as:
“Davis Langdon swept to victory in this category for its tremendous growth, care for its employees and its visionary approach to sustainability.”
On Davis Langdon’s own carbon rating tool, launched last year to help clients identify and manage their carbon footprints, the judges said, “It seems the company is well on the way to making the world a greener place.”

“It is immensely satisfying to receive this industry award in recognition of the work we have done in the past year - investing in our people and helping clients to manage their own carbon footprints. Our focus remains on providing the best quality of service to our clients and making a measurable difference to their projects.”
