A Chesterfield based architectural business has been named a top practice in the UK.

The accolade for WCEC Architects comes in a survey compiled by leading publication Architects Journal.

Alex Wall, managing director, said: “This has been another positive and progressive year for WCEC with a record high turnover achieved at the end of last year.

“As well as consolidating our reputation in traditional sectors such as retail, the last year has seen WCEC further its status as a trusted designer of major urban residential, student living and mixed use schemes across the UK.”

The Architects Journal has surveyed UK practices for its definitive AJ100 rankings since 1995, offering insight into the sector’s performance and gauging the industry’s optimism for the year ahead.

Top architects and award winners were announced at a gala dinner in London earlier this month.
