OBI Property are proud to have won two awards at the North West’s most prestigious property awards ceremony; the Insider North West Property Awards 2016 held last week at Manchester Central and attended by over 1,000 people.
The first award was the ‘Professional Services Award, with the judges commenting: “It was only when we read the entry that we realised that OBI Property is so such more than an agency. Their consultancy business is a worthy winner.”
Winning this award was a fantastic result for our Building and Workplace Consultancy teams and topped off an amazing year having been responsible for some of the most high profile refurbishment and fit out projects in the region.
The award was presented by Gareth Russell of Russells Construction to Andrew Crompton and Oliver Thomas of OBI Property.
The second award was an individual award for OBI Co-founder Will Lewis who won the ‘North West Property Dealmaker of the Year’. With just two people shortlisted the judges said Will was a worthy winner. “He’s passionate, knows his clients, has fantastic contacts and has created a formidable brand.”
Will has completed a string of high profile deals during 2015 including; a 50,000 sq ft pre-let to PwC at No.1 Spinningfields, the leasing and investment sale of 35 Fountain Street and the leasehold acquisition of 60,000 sq ft of workspace in the XYZ Building on behalf of NCC Group.
Will Lewis said: “We are delighted to have won both of these awards and it was especially satisfying to have our Building and Workplace Consultancy teams recognised with the professional services award.
Our business is built around providing clients with a multi-disciplinary service from interior design, project management, dilapidations, rating, leasing and investment consultancy. This “OBI Difference” has seen us continue to build the business through 2015 and having launched our new office at the start of this year we expect 2016 to be even more successful.
