It was a great pleasure for the GreenBlue Urban to invite friends, colleagues and collaborators to celebrate the opening of our new London Design Studio in the heart of London’s thriving creative district of Clerkenwell. A stone’s throw from major transport hubs it makes the ideal location for Architects, Landscape Architects, Contractors, Developers, Planners and many more to come to discuss designs and to avail themselves of our ongoing CPD and training events.

With our ever-expanding range of water management solutions, building upon our 27-year’s experience integrating urban trees and green infrastructure into the hard landscape, it was appropriate that the talks which kicked off the showroom event focused on SUDs both in the capital and beyond. We were delighted to have guest speakers from the GLAGeorge Warren and the Landscape InstituteAmina Waters & Andrew Morris and GBU’s very own Charlotte Markey presented alongside the current CIRIA SUDS Champion Chryse TinsleyLeicester City Council providing an overview on the research and innovation that had resulted from GBUs involvement in EU Interreg Projects.

 

The event highlighted the fact that strong relationships between our core team and those experts who have moved the SUDS agenda forward are absolutely essential to the long-term development of the market. Through group working and joined up approaches to delivering high quality products and designs we can provide the multifunctional solutions required for success and we cannot work alone!

The decision to open the new showroom was predicated on the fact that whilst the innovation campus in Sussex is an ideal location to meet with the team and see the physical manufacturing of products, there is an increasing desire for those delivering and designing schemes based in the capital and in cities connected to it, to be able to meet in a central location, and drop into a hub where a full complement of technical and design services are available daily.

Breakfast, lunch and evening training and networking sessions will be rolled out all year around. GreenBlue will also be collaborating with a variety of professional bodies and chartered institutes so that the space can become a locus for diverse and engaging events both educational and social.
