Grosvenor & Bermondsey

Meet the team

With the help of the community, we’re investing, developing and renewing a part of Bermondsey, we all know and love.

Grosvenor

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland makes and manages sustainable neighbourhoods in London, Liverpool and across the South of England, where communities, businesses and nature can thrive.

We are one part of a global, privately-owned family business that’s been creating and pioneering the creation and adaption of places for over 300 years. That means we act patiently, think long-term, and give equal weight to the social, environmental and commercial impact of everything we do.

Our work in Bermondsey is guided by our Community Charter and commitment to redefining climate action in our sector. Find out more here.

Keltbray

Keltbray have been appointed as the contractor for the enabling and demolition works of the school and will also be doing works to the former biscuit factory. When operational, Keltbray will also issue monthly bulletins updating immediate neighbours on the status of their works.

Keltbray’s project manager for this project is Mick Kelly, who is supported by Site Manager Sam Clode and Bobby Gannon.

The design team

They are an international architecture practice that prides itself on creating buildings which reflect and inspire the communities they serve. Their design process is underpinned by a respect for people and the desire to create spaces that resonate with a sense of place.
