Full Service Architecture Firm of the Year

Full Service Architecture Firm of the Year

Exciting news! We are pleased to announce that Acres Architecture has recently been awarded Full Service Architecture Firm of the Year UK by BUILD magazine.

The 2015 Architecture Awards were established by BUILD “to highlight the amazing work done by the talented designers, artists and visionaries, whether established names or up-and-coming stars of the future, whose breath-taking work brings our cities and towns to life and creates landmarks and talking points that can last a lifetime”.

Everyone here at Acres Architecture is delighted to receive this recognition. When asked what we believe to be the reasons behind our success, our Managing Director, Edward Acres, explained that it is “down to not only our wide range of additional services and products but more so their bespoke/unique appeal! We like to think we set our own trends, regardless of other firms and their focus. If we see a situation where we can create a new service that fills an emerging gap in the market, we do it.  Even if it is applicable to only one client initially. We can then look to market that product or service to future clients and continue to widen our service appeal. This results in us being able to offer much more than your typical architectural practice.”

The Award is the culmination of an exciting year for Acres Architecture, which has grown rapidly, taking on new and larger clients as well as new members of staff to be able to handle the increase in workload. We feel that one of the key reasons for our continued success is the fact that we are all so passionate about architecture and construction, and that we focus so closely on our clients’ needs.


When asked by the BUILD judges about what makes Acres Architecture different, we answered “one of the biggest elements to make us stand out is the fact that we help to fill in the blanks! Whether that’s through technology or the birth of a new product or service to fill an opening in the market, there is always something we can do to help when clients get stuck!”. Our ability to adapt to different clients, situations and requirements in a pragmatic manner helps us to stay ahead of the game.


So, what does the future hold for Acres Architecture now? Well we intend to continue growing, and dream of one day becoming a major multidisciplinary practice, offering not only architectural services but also engineering, quantity surveying and many other professional construction services – with the ultimate aim that our clients can turn to us as a “one stop shop” for all their requirements on a multitude of construction projects.
