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.

OBI also won ‘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.”
