Working on Crossrail’s new Elizabeth line stations at Paddington and Woolwich has given us the opportunity to compete for major projects in Australia and Canada over the last three years. As a result, we are currently designing and delivering five stations on the Metro Tunnel Project in Melbourne; a major upgrade to Sydney Metro Sydenham Station; two stations and associated urban realm on the Yonge metro line extension in Toronto and a new regional transit centre and passenger processing facility at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
These wins and others have enabled the establishment of our studios in Melbourne, Sydney and most recently Toronto, and swelled staff numbers to 150.
Founding partner Chris Williamson said:
“We are delighted to win the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which recognises our success in designing and delivering complex city-shaping projects around the world.
“London has led the world in gradually coaxing people out of cars and onto safe, reliable, efficient public transport, bringing with it great benefits to the environment and creating a more civilised city. We are proud to be a part of this transformation and excited by the opportunities to demonstrate our knowledge and approach to city-shaping in growing global cities around the world.”
“Our export success shows that you don’t have to be a huge company to work and sell abroad. If you have a specialism, if you’re expert in your field, there are great opportunities.”
The Queen's Awards are the highest official awards for British business and were first awarded in 1966.
