The quality of our work is reflected
in over 100 architectural awards

We do not start any project with the intention of winning an award, however we have been lucky enough over the years to work with some fantastic clients, design teams and contractors, and together with our own creative and technical skills we have delivered numerous successful developments across a huge range of sectors.  The quality of this work has been reflected by JDDK receiving over 100 awards in our first 28 years in business…and the number is increasing year on year.
