Walker Sime, with offices in Manchester and Liverpool was last week revealed as a 2014 Building Awards winner. The North-West company with 48 employees received the Construction Consultant/Surveyor of the Year in the category of 100 staff or less at the national award ceremony which took place at London’s Grosvenor Hotel on the 2nd April.

Derek Walker, Director of Walker Sime commented on the win:

“We were shortlisted against five London based companies so it’s a fantastic achievement for a Northern based Consultancy and a great start to 2014, clearly putting us and the talent right here in the region on the map.

“We are proud of all our staff and everybody associated with Walker Sime. We have competed with and consistently beaten some of the top performing national consultants to win a raft of prestigious and complex infrastructure projects here in our region and beyond.”

The Building Awards’ winners showcase the best the Building industry has to offer, ranging from large multinationals to SMEs and third sector organisations. The event rewards those that play a key part in outstanding building projects and shape the future of construction recognising contractors, architects, engineers and specialist sub-contractors.
