Whittam Cox Architects retain Gold Standard IIP Accreditation


Whittam Cox Architects are delighted to announce that they have retained their Gold standard Investors in People (IiP) Accreditation.

The award places the practice, who has over 130 employees, amongst the top 16% of all IiP-accredited businesses internationally.

Whittam Cox Architects initially gained IiP Gold status in 2015 following the recognition of employee investment and recruitment initiatives. The second accolade, which has been measured against the new IiP version 6 (v6) standard, reflects the successful development and implementation of the company’s latest values and innovation strategies.

Dave Savage, Board Director commented, “Confirmation we have once again been awarded Investors in People Gold further strengthens the Practice’s credibility and reinforces how much we value the individual and collective contribution of all of our employees.

I am proud that the Whittam Cox Architects team has once again demonstrated a commitment to continual improvement and equally delighted that we have been awarded the Investors in People Gold accreditation in recognition of this. “      

The announcement follows a successful period which has seen the Practice deliver a number of noteworthy and high profile projects including a new 3500 home development in East London and a 2500 unit Build to Rent scheme in Greater Manchester as well as being identified as one of the ‘Top 1000 Business’ to Inspire Britain’ and ranking as one of the ‘Top 50 UK Architects’ by industry leading publication ‘Building’ Magazine.
