BDN Shortlised for SME Business of the Year

Building Design Northern (BDN) have been shortlisted for SME Business of the Year at the Sunderland Echo Business Excellence Awards.

The Sunderland and Ulverston based Architects and Engineers have been shortlisted for the award, at the annual ceremony which celebrates the most ambitious, innovative and hard-working businesses across Wearside and County Durham.

The SME Business of the Year category represents small or medium enterprises (SME’s) that stand out from the crowd, due to performance, growth, and dynamism.

BDN’s nomination follows a period of rapid growth for the Northern firm, growing from 14 to 26 employees in just 18 months. Having relocated their Head Office to Sunderland in 2021, the multi-disciplinary practice has rapidly grown its roots in the city and is playing an instrumental role in its transformation.

The restoration of the Stables at Sheepfolds is the latest in a long line of projects that the firm is involved in in Sunderland, having worked on designs and engineering for Spire View, Ashburne House, Mackie’s Corner, as well as leading the mixed-use renovations of Simpson Street School. BDN was also appointed by Sunderland City Council to support an ambitious £59m housing development programme across the city.

Richard Marsden, Managing Director, said, “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for SME Business of the Year. As a Sunderland based firm, with a young, local workforce, we are dedicated in the transformation of the city.

“It is great for our hard work to be recognised and a privilege to be up against local Sunderland businesses, in celebrating the success across our region.”

The Sunderland Echo Business Excellence Awards are on 17th November 2022, hosted at the Stadium of Light. Find out more here > https://www.sunderlandbusinessawards.co.uk/
