V&A Summer Party

Property professionals join Grangewood to celebrate London’s heritage at its summer drinks reception.

Over 200 professionals from across the property sector gathered for our annual summer drinks reception to celebrate London’s heritage and world class design reputation.

Held at the spectacular V&A Museum in Knightsbridge the venue was the perfect setting to enjoy a drink, and take in the grandeur of the iconic Victorian building from its centre point in the John Madejski Garden. On display in the garden was Stuttgart based architect, Achim Menges, fabricated pavilion. Built entirely from robotically produced fibrous systems based on the wings of flying beetles it provided a great backdrop as the sun set, and its illuminated canopy came to life.

Speaking at the event Richard Stevens, Grangewoods CEO took the opportunity to thank clients for their long-term partnerships. Commenting on the results from our recent customer insight survey Richard said: “I’d like to thank you all for your continued support. While the research isn’t yet fully complete figures already show that you associate Grangewood with quality. You see us as a trusted family business that provides value for money and delivers on its promises. We’ve very proud of this.”

This summer Grangewood launched its Celebration of Heritage buildings campaign, coinciding with the 150th Anniversary of the blue plaque building scheme operated by English Heritage.  As part of our celebration campaign we’ve been asking people to nominate their favourite heritage buildings in London, and to share why they are special to them.

During the event Richard announced the results and crowned the Houses of Parliament the winner. Over 100 people shared their views from across the sector as well as members of the Heritage of London Trust. Richard added: “Thanks to your involvement in the survey we’ve managed to raise over £1000.00 for the Heritage of London Trust. A great result.”
