We are delighted to see our commitment to our people and culture; to sustainable design for our planet and its future; and to making a positive impact on the communities we work for and within, all recognised, cementing Purcell’s position as forward-thinking industry leaders.

In particular, being nominated for AJ100 Practice of the Yearis a humbling testament to the success ofour transition to Employee Ownership, which has allowed us to flourish and evolve as a business by empowering our people.

Since becoming employee-owned in 2021 we have been actively looking to maximise the benefits of our new ownership structure forour employee-owners, clients, and the communities in which we work. The nomination is a great validation of the work carried out so far and we look forward to continuing onthis journey in the years ahead.
