Success Stories - The Large Corporate

It's over a year now since Merchant Place Developments approached PHP to photograph their new Subsea Excellence Centre Development for The Expro Group in Ulverston, Cumbria.

An impressive building, which considering its industrial use, is beautifully designed with little visual impact on the stunning landscape that surrounds it.

Designed by Jeffery Associates (http://www.jefferyassociates.co.uk/), the building itself has an appeal that very few industrial buildings display, coupled with well conceived and implemented sustainability features.

On completion of the site photography PHP suggested entering the International Property Awards to Merchant Developments based on the sustainability features and the quality of the design. The suggestion was followed and PHP designed the presentation document with print and finishing by AMS Creative Colour for submission to the awards judges.

Designed as an A3 brochure, matt laminated and wire bound with semi opaque plastic covers to give a quality look and feel the submission presented the building and its features in a clean illustrative manner.

Prior to the awards Merchant Developments had been informed that they had indeed been short-listed for one of the awards they were nominated for, however the big reveal of which award (Regional or International) was kept for the Gala Dinner.

It was revealed at the awards ceremony in London on Saturday 27th November that Merchant Developments had won not only the Best UK Industrial Development but also the Best International Industrial Development beating off strong competition from around the world including the US, Asia and Europe.

“Photography is an important element in presenting our track record to both potential funders and tenants. As such it is an integral part in the progression of our company. In this case Philip not only photographed our completed development, but he also informed us of the Awards potential and designed and produced the document submitting the development to the judges.

The collaborative efforts of our Technical Team and Philip produced an informative and illustrative document which to our delight secured both Best International Industrial Development and Best UK Industrial Development Awards at the prestigious International Property Awards. This result was way beyond any of our expectations.

As a result of this win we have utilised the photography originally commissioned together with the new awards submission document for PR and marketing purposes which naturally helps to continue to strengthen Merchant Place Developments position within our market” -
