Flood experts Ambiental have received the honour of being named Best Environmental Industry Company at the Brighton and Hove Business Awards (BAHBAs) for the second year in a row, as well as adding The Award for Business Beyond the City to their trophy cabinet.
Ambiental's bid was based on their international work, new technology and expanded range of products. In the past year, the company has developed highly accurate and validated flood models for countries including Australia, UK, Czech Republic and Switzerland, and has set up operations in Australia, Asia and the USA. Their FlowRoute software now models around 25% more rivers than other commercially-available products, and a new product, RiskCentral, enables UK homeowners and buyers to instantly check their flood risk.
The BAHBAs, now in their ninth year, are an annual celebration of business success in Brighton and Hove, and aim to recognise companies and organisations that represent the spirit of the city.
The awards were announced in a ceremony at the end of Brighton Pier on 10th July, with the pair of gongs for Ambiental collected by Managing Director Dr Justin Butler, and Technical Director David Martin. "To win our second environmental award in a row is great, it shows a real recognition of the value of our work," said Butler. "The business is growing and moving into new markets at home and abroad, and our achievements at this year's BAHBAs reflect that success."
