Although we do not measure our success solely on the number of awards to our name, we are very proud to be recognised for our involvement, and to have our achievements celebrated amongst other industry professionals. Here are some of our most recent accolades.
Hannington Lane - Sussex Heritage Awards 2020
We are delighted to receive the news that our Hannington Lane project has been recognised at the Sussex Heritage Awards; WINNING in the Commercial category.
This was a challenging, land locked and ‘tight’ city centre site. A number of existing construction types had to be assessed for re-use and adaptation. Throughout the design, HOP looked to stabilise existing buildings by recommending integrated new steel framed structures. Where possible we suggested using the new permanent works structure to assist or negate the requirement for difficult temporary works.
Willmott Dixon - Powered By The Best Awards 2019
In December 2019, HOP was presented with the Legacy Award at Willmott Dixon’s Design Consortium Partner event: ‘Powered by The Best’. It’s great to be recognised for our team’s fantastic social value achievements, including our second instalment of Practical Skills in Construction and our continued annual commitment to Paddle Round the Pier.
Sussex Business Awards 2019
We are delighted to announce that HOP has been shortlisted for the Sussex Business Awards 2019: Professional Services Award.
Constructing Excellence Awards 2018
HOP are thrilled to announce that we are finalists in two categories at the London & SE Constructing Excellence (SECBS) Awards. We have been nominated for the ‘People Development Award’ and the ‘Apprenticeship Initiative Award’, both showing HOP’s commitment to the development of our people and encouraging others into Civil and Structural Engineering.
Willmott Dixon - Powered By The Best Awards 2017
HOP are delighted to have picked up two awards at the Willmott Dixon: Powered By The Best Awards 2017. We were presented with the Legacy Award, which recognises our ongoing investment in staff training, as well our commitment to supporting the local community.

Brighton and Hove Business Awards 2017
We were delighted to be awarded Business of the Year and the Professional Services Award at the Brighton and Hove Business Awards 2017.
The BAHBA ceremony is held to celebrate those companies, organisations and individuals that help build the Brighton brand. Receiving the Business of the Year Award, the most sought after accolade of the night, was an unexpected surprise and we couldn’t be more proud of all our staff.
HOP Project, Pendennis achieved finalist status in the ‘Best Civil Engineering Project up to £10m’ category, at the prestigious Annual BCI Awards. The project was highly commended by the judges.
HOP were the designers for D&B Contractors, Raymond Brown on this great job, which consisted of a non-tidal new wet dock for Pendennis Superyachts at Falmouth. The development has vastly improved the efficiency in de-storing and recommissioning periods for vessels undergoing refit in Falmouth.
The Big Park Project: Constructing Excellence Awards
In 2016 HOP was recognised in the Sustainability category for the Constructing Excellence Awards for our involvement in The Big Parks Project. The £2.1 million community-led project utilised a mix of highly visible renewable energy technology and durable low-maintenance construction materials in the refurbishment of this former derelict site.
The Big Parks Project has helped to provide a great focal point for the community and facilities for local business.
ICE Award for Innovation
HOP are very pleased to have won the Institution for Civil Engineers (South) Innovation Award presented by the then President of our Institution, Dr Jean Venables, on 19 June 2015. This was for the design of the roads and permeable paving drainage for the new school access, car park and sports court at Hurstpierpoint College, incorporating reduced flood risk by using Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDS).
Recently, we won the award again for our role as Joint Engineer and Principal Project Manager for the British Airways i360. HOP designed a Temporary Port for the beach landings which enabled prefabricated components to be delivered directly to site. HOP also developed an initiative to recycle excavated materials from the towers foundations to be put to a beneficial use in coast protection works further down the coast.
