“Ridge is delighted to continue flying the flag through these extraordinary times as the overall winners of the “Business of the Year Award” in 2019 and sponsors for 2022. As an international business founded in Oxford since 1946, we are celebrating our 75th year in 2021 so it was fitting that we won the top prize at the 25th Oxfordshire Business Awards. It was a very special feeling collecting this award on behalf of all our talented people.

Winning such a prestigious award is a great accolade for our multidiscipline team of over 220 people at our local Woodstock HQ – this prize is for all their efforts delivering amazing projects with pride and passion for our clients. Ridge now employs 750 people in 13 offices across the UK so taking part in these local awards is important for our heritage and building the future. Supporting the OXBA awards has certainly raised our profile with our clients and local communities for local economic development, employment opportunities and environmental initiatives.”
