John McAslan + Partners' Manchester Studio held a reception in November to celebrate their recent Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade for 2014 with guest of honour Sir Howard Bernstein, Chief Executive of Manchester City Council. Entitled "Globally Competitive: Manchester's International Reach", the event highlighted the practice's current portfolio of projects in Haiti, British Columbia, Rio and China being created from the Manchester Studio.
Tony Skipper, JMP Managing Director and Director of the Manchester Studio, remarked that "location really matters and our presence in Manchester has allowed us to build relationships city-wide, across the region but perhaps more unusually and significantly internationally. In addition to serving our clients locally and regionally, we are also interested in growing our brand internationally, trading our design skills and selling the UKTI's vision of BRITAIN is GREAT. As a practice we have a strong ethos to work internationally and it's that exposure to clients, process and environment across the world that we believe makes our work more engaging. Manchester continues to appeal and inspire the practice; it has a diversity of commercial, cultural and community interest; it is rich in history and forward thinking like no other city outside London in the UK and we are proud to have one of our UK offices located here. More than ever Manchester continues to thrive and we are proud to be a part of its success."
