UK: Key Colombian institutional investors visit Chapman Taylor in London

The Colombian economy over the last decade has experienced an historic economic boom. It has the fastest growing major economy in the Western world, and is only behind China worldwide in terms of its growth rate.

Chapman Taylor has many years’ experience working in Colombia and throughout Southern and Central America.  We are recognised as one of the leading international architects present in the region, and our portfolio of Latin American projects continues to grow.

To capitalise on this growth, UK Trade & Investment representatives from the British Embassy in Colombia recently organised for a delegation of key Colombian investors and advisors to a visit Chapman Taylor’s London office. The delegation all have key roles in revitalising transportation and infrastructure in Colombia.   

Roger Wilson, a UK Board Director, and Jorge Alonso, from our Spanish office, welcomed the delegation, presented our existing Colombian work and, in particular, our key infrastructure and transport projects. Together with the delegation, Roger and Jorge then visited two of our remarkable commercial projects at King Cross Station and St. Pancras Station.
