A PROPERTY consultancy in Winchester has won a top industry award.

Winnall-based Ridge and Partners was named Specialist Consultancy of the Year at the 2022 South East Property Awards, sponsored by Insider Magazine.

In addition, Trinity Winchester's Bradbury View residential extension won Best Residential Development, while Winchester Hospice at Burrell House was highly commended in the Fit Out/Refurbishment of the Year category.

Ridge is a multidisciplinary property and construction consultancy with offices around the UK.

Richard Hand first started a south coast office with three members of staff in 2008.

Having grown that office organically, he led the acquisition of Winchester-based engineering consultancy Upton McGougan in 2014.

In 2016, he secured the purchase of PH Warr Ltd and relocated all their Bournemouth and Southampton staff to the Ridge office at Winnall and, in 2019, he completed the acquisition of another Winchester-based consultancy, Gysin Warr Ltd, successfully integrating everyone within the Ridge organisation and culture.

These acquisitions, as well as further strategically planned growth, have resulted in Winchester becoming Ridge’s second largest office nationwide, now employing 100 staff within 14 teams.
