An award-winning planning and architecture firm is to sponsor a category at the Surrey Digital Awards 2018.

WS Planning & Architecture – which won Gold at the Surrey Digital Awards 2016 in “Best Website” – is putting its prestigious name to the “Best Website: Small Business” award for 2018.

Based in Reigate, the company is an established planning and architecture practice focused on designing high quality buildings and spaces that shape the world around us.

In 2017, WS Planning & Architecture celebrated its 25th year in business, marked by them making the finals of the SDAs and Gatwick Diamond Business Awards.

Also this year, they have had three residential developments nominated in the 2017 Surrey Property Awards.

Spencer Copping, Planning Director at WS Planning & Architecture explained why they chose to sponsor the SDAs after two years of taking part as an entrant.

“WS Planning & Architecture are delighted to be sponsoring the ‘Best Website: Small Business’ Category at the Surrey Digital Awards 2018,” he revealed.

“The social media buzz created by the inaugural SDA’s in 2015 provided the catalyst for a complete redesign of our own digital offering which resulted in a Gold Award for Best Website at the 2016 Surrey Digital Awards.

“Digital confidence is key for any forward-thinking business and provides existing and prospective clients an essential insight into the effectiveness of your organisation and promotes brand awareness.

“We offer planning advice and architectural services founded on the vision of unlocking potential for our clients, the WS Team and the local community.”

Entry for the Surrey Digital Awards 2018 is open until January 19, 2018, and the Presentation Evening will take place at HG Wells Conference and Events Centre, Woking, on March 15, 2018.

Iain Johnson, Co-Founder of the Surrey Digital Awards, said: “We are thrilled to welcome WS Planning & Architecture as a sponsor at SDA18.

“After two years of success for them at the SDAs, once making the finals and in 2016 clinching our flagship Gold award, it is fantastic to have them involved in a way that will allow them to build upon that success and raise their profile as one of Surrey’s most proactive and respected businesses.”
