2017: Year in Review
As we are now well into 2018, I thought I would take a brief look back at the past year before sharing a few plans for 2018. Having spent a number of years in Surbiton, Spring 2017 saw the closure of our Surbiton office as it no longer met our business needs. Some aspects of our business are now managed from our office in Exeter, whilst Addlestone provides us with another working space in anticipation of our re-establishing a permanent presence in central London. More on that shortly.
Over the course of the last 12 months, we have continued to help bring a number of brownfield sites back into life, assessing and demonstrating development potential on a number of closed landfills and seeing these through to construction. We also maintain a strong presence in central London by assisting on several large mixed use schemes, looking at temporary and permanent works for deep basements, deep foundations and bringing former industrial sites back into use through detailed risk assessment and remedial design.
GB Card & Partners is pleased to support a number of charitable projects and causes here in the UK and abroad. Our latest contribution has been to supply IT equipment to a charitable organisation in Somerset involved with global education and learning.
Collaboration and best practice
