The judges praised the winner for the range of projects it was tackling, from huge masterplans and complexes requiring production facilities, to small light industrial workshops.

The judges said the work was “thoughtful and worthwhile”, and noted that the practice was proud of working in a sector that lacks a high profile but is nevertheless very demanding because of the pressure to deliver operational excellence to tight budgets.

The judges were impressed with 3D Reid’s emphasis on sustainability and its commitment to pushing clients in the “right way”. To help it do this, it now has an accredited Breeam assessor for industrial buildings.

Also shortlisted: Foster and Partners, Pascall + Watson, RPS Burks Green and Wilkinson Eyre.
