Winner at the 2019 awards, Matthew Montague Architects said of last year’s event: “Winning Architect of the Year at the East Midlands Bricks Awards in 2019 has had a very positive affect on our business. The awards evening was well organised and well attended, it was great to network with so many colleagues from within the construction industry.”

Mary Gharmount, associate and commercial property solicitor at Nelsons, said: “We were thrilled to have taken home the Deal of the Year award alongside Fairgrove Homes at the prestigious East Midlands Bricks Awards 2019.

“Last year’s awards ceremony had an amazing atmosphere and, with more than 150 property and construction professionals from across the region in attendance, offered a prime networking opportunity.

“There was such a high calibre of entries so to be one of the 10 winners was a fantastic achievement and resulted in great exposure for Nelsons in the weeks that followed.”
