The Dynamic Awards 2024

We were immensely proud that Emily was a finalist in two categories, Property Professional of the Year & Future Talent of the Year.
This is the 3rd year of the awards that recognise the accomplishments of women trailblazers, innovators and role models who lead the way in their fields and inspire others.
To make the shortlist was a huge achievement – the team had a great evening at the Awards, held at The Grand Hotel in Brighton.

Ashcombe School Careers Fair 2024

We supported The Ashcombe School Careers Fair 2024 which coincided with the 17th annual National Apprenticeship Week. Exhibitors covered a wide range of higher education, apprenticeships, industries and professions. There was also a programme of talks covering Personal Statements, Apprenticeships, Working in the Space Industry and How to Choose a University Course.
Abigail Retter, Apprentice Architectural Assistant and Emily Hall, Associate Director and Chartered Planner spoke with lots of eager future Planners & Architects!

Anniversary Drinks

The team gathered at The Pilgrim Brewery in Reigate to celebrate our first year in practice for WS Heritage and Brouard Architects which also coincided with Spencer Copping’s 25th work anniversary. It was great to share the moment with our Preferred Partners, clients, and industry friends that have been so important on our journey thus far.

Proud Finalists at The Reigate & Banstead Business Awards 2023

The WS Team attended an excellent Reigate & Banstead Business Awards. Another great event organised by the council’s Economic Prosperity Team.
Unfortunately, we had to settle for runner-up in the Resilient Business of the Year category – to The Reigate Manor Hotel, worthy winners and fabulous hosts.
We were entertained by the ever-youthful Junior who treated us to a rendition of 80s hit “Mama Used to Say” – who some of us remember and sang along to!
We look forward to the 2024 awards.

We celebrate Croydon Vision’s Centenary

The WS Planning & Architecture team were delighted to join the celebrations of Croydon Vision’s Centenary year. We are excited to be working closely with them to deliver their ambition of creating a wonderful new and vibrant centre to improve the quality of life of the area’s blind and partially sighted community.

Team Conference 2023

Our annual conference started with Cornerstone Barristers based in Gray’s Inn Square WC1 who conducted a series of presentations on Planning policies and updates. In the afternoon we were treated to a guided tour of the Sir John Soane’s Museum in Lincolns Inn Fields.

We Host a Local Business Event

On the 18th May we hosted a Planning & Development at The Old Reigatians Rugby Club in Reigate. The event was attended by local decision makers involved in the property market. This was an excellent opportunity to network and share ideas through a series of presentations and panel discussions.

A New Service – WS Heritage

We’re kicking off 2023 by offering a new Heritage Consultancy service to our clients. This is an exciting development led by a team of experts with a broad scope of industry knowledge and experience.
