BritCham- CBBC would like to extend its congratutations to member BDP after being announed winner of the Greater China Rising Star Award, at the Greater China Awards and dinner on Friday 3rd February at the Lowry Theatre, Salford.

BDP whose head office is in Manchester is Britain’s largest design organisation with staff in studios across the UK and Ireland.

BDP’s first commission in China came in 2009, designing shopping centres in Beijing, Wuxi and Wuhan for a well-known multinational company, and was also commissioned by Liverpool Vision as part of the design team for Liverpool’s Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo.

Since then BDP has developed a long term strategy for maximising business in China. With an office and currently 20 staff in Shanghai, BDP has secured 95 separate commissions there and the total income generated from China has grown from 0.7% of total income in 2009 to 15.6% of income in 2011 and is set to continue growing.

The runner up was Merseyside architecture and design firm Brock Carmichael Architects.

Philomena Chen, Head of Asia Pacific Development for UK Trade & Investment, North West said, "It was an incredibly tight decision with very little between the shortlisted applicants. However there had to be one winner and one runner up, and we chose the companies who have showed the most evidence of a commitment to the market and who have successfully expanded their business in mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan."

"Both our winner and our runner up are impressive ‘rising stars’ who have successfully identified opportunities in the growing China market and used a clear strategy and thorough approach to make the most of them."

Clive Drinkwater, Director for North West, UK Trade & Investment, said: "Greater China continues to be of major importance on the global stage and we are sure our winning companies will be able to enjoy long term rewards and success in return for the time and finances they have invested in furthering their business interests there."
