2022 has been a year of many milestones and achievements for RED Construction Group, both as a business and as a community. The most notable being the announcement of our new group restructure to strengthen the businesses, unveiling distinct operating companies, RED London and RED South West, covering key regional opportunities. We also launched RED Special Projects, the company’s newest operating division, focusing on delivering exceptional construction services on projects valued from £100k to £7m, allowing RED London to deliver projects up to £40m across London.
The Group have been working on outstanding projects for exceptional clients. Our London team has been leading the way in the capital, progressing unique developments such as: Seaforth’s distinctive refurbishment project at 8 Bleeding Heart Yard on Greville Street; CIFI Group and Arbrook Land’s exciting seven-storey redevelopment of 19 Dacre Street, close to St James’s Park; Hnes’ flagship mixed-use retail and office project at 80 New Bond Street; and ITC Properties’ redevelopment of Townsend House – just to name a few. The launch of RED South West saw our southern division appointed to deliver the £20m net zero carbon Zeal Hotel in Exeter, the first hotel of its kind in the UK.
2022 has been a bumper year of not only exceptional projects, but our commitment to giving back, with the team raising over £40,000 for a number of charities, including Pancreatic Cancer UK, London’s Air Ambulance Charity and Imperial Health Charity. We had the pleasure of hosting our Annual Clay Shoot and first RED Annual Golf Day at Moor Park Golf Club, and took part in Grosvenor’s 19th Annual Dragon Boat Regatta. Many of the RED team completed the Extra Mile Charity Cycle across rural France and RED’s Three Peaks Challenge – go #TeamRED!
As importantly, our ‘RED to Green’ ESG strategy achieved its first major milestone, by cutting our reliance on fossil fuelled vehicles in the company fleet. We’re now 50% hybrid and 50% fully electric, and are driving towards 100% fully electric by 2025. We were also delighted to welcome Steve Kerslake to our site at Greville Street, using Construction Sport to encourage honest discussion about mental health and wellbeing.
None of the above, however, would have been possible without our clients, our team, our supply chain partners, and the many consultancies and businesses that we collaborate so effectively with. Thank you all for your ongoing support and commitment to RED.
