Oktra were awarded the 2023 Design and Build Project of the Year at Mixology23 for the project for Chrono24 UK in Hertfordshire.
Mixology is one of the calendar highlights within the commercial office design sector and renowned as one of the most prestigious awards that recognises the top design and architectural projects. This year, Oktra won the Design and Build Project of the Year award for our project with Chrono24 UK.
This office stands out as one of the more unique projects delivered by Oktra in recent years and we’re exceptionally proud to have this work celebrated and officially be named as an award-winning project. CEO of Chrono24 UK Joseph McKenzie gave us his insight to his experience of the project.
“We made an exceptional choice in selecting Oktra as our partner for the Barn by Chrono24 UK. With our business comprising the unusual mix of hospitality and a complex technical service centre with specific demands, it was crucial to find a partner capable of swiftly executing the project to the highest standard. Witnessing the remarkable transformation of the space throughout our collaboration with Oktra was truly astounding. Despite the immense challenges posed by the lockdown; their team, in collaboration with ours, displayed unwavering professionalism and dedication in delivering the project. We are thoroughly delighted with the final result and wholeheartedly recommend Oktra. This well-deserved award serves as a fitting conclusion and celebration of the collective journey we undertook, and the entire team should take immense pride in this accomplishment!”
This is a milestone win that demonstrates Oktra’s capability to deliver highly complex projects in environments outside of modern commercial properties. Sean Espinasse says that he views this as a win for everyone involved with the project.
“Everyone at Oktra is delighted with the outcome – this was a project we worked on for years before going to site. In this time we built a fantastic relationship with the client, so while the award recognition for Oktra is amazing, there is an immense sense of pride to have won this alongside the Chrono24 UK team. The win crowns off what has been an incredible project.”
