RED Construction Group was founded in 2016 by Graham Sturge and Ian Hopkinson.

Independent and agile, RED quickly established itself as a main contractor to watch in London. Our growth in work was matched by an expansion of the team, initially through the onboarding of long-standing colleagues and friends known for their proven abilities, followed by the recruitment of new industry talent. 

From inception, RED delivered an exceptional portfolio of schemes in the capital. These included landmark structures and developments such as Axtell House, a state-of-the-art mixed-use site in London’s Soho, and the UK debut for international hotel brand Ruby Lucy in Waterloo. We demonstrated the calibre of our capabilities in new-build and refurbishment projects through consistent delivery of outstanding quality and defined our specialisation in the commercial, residential, leisure and hotel sectors.

With a controlled growth strategy in place, RED continued to evolve significantly and profitably. Momentum was maintained throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, with the company keeping sites operational and no impact on staff, without any reliance on government support. Similarly, RED has remained in a strong position in the face of Brexit’s challenges to the industry due to strong internal frameworks and consistent supplier relationships.

RED now employs 100 people across its Group structure, comprising distinct divisions: RED London, RED South West. The Group’s values and objectives steer its approach to client and project work as RED continues to implement positive change and a legacy.
