rg+p launches in London
One of the most rapidly expanding architectural practices, rg+p, has officially launched its London office at a reception ahead of the Venture Cup ‘Prologue’, the precursor to the world famous, offshore powerboat race.
rg+p London opened its Shoreditch office as part of a major investment and expansion of the rg+p group, which has its head office in Leicester. The company currently employs four staff in London and 30 in Leicester.
Bill Smedley, Managing Director of rg+p London commented: “With a number of existing clients and projects in London and a healthy pipeline of work in the area, it was the perfect opportunity to launch the London office. We have taken on three new staff already and we hope we’ll continue to grow over the next few years.”
Over 60 guests, clients and VIPs gathered at Wood Wharf for the official launch event, which was a joint venture with Construction Racing, part of the Honda Powerboat team.
Tom Hart, Director of rg+p London added: “The launch event was a great success and Canary Wharf provided the perfect setting to raise our profile within the Capital. The finale to the proceedings was the high-speed ‘drive by’ by the rg+p-sponsored D-250 powerboat, which was enjoyed by all our guests as well as hundreds of spectators who had gathered in the Venture Cup Event Village.
“The London office presents an exciting challenge for the team but it’s one we embrace so we can continue to do what we do best; design and deliver fantastic buildings.”
rg+p London’s office is on Rivington Street, Shoreditch and the company is currently working on residential and commercial projects in Watford, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
