Grayson were thrilled to sponsor the Refurbishment category at this year’s Brick Awards. The annual awards ceremony is now in its 42nd year and continues to recognise the best brick projects across 15 categories. Leading architects, housebuilders, developers, contractors and suppliers gathered at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane London to celebrate.
The evening began with a champagne reception and then a 3 course meal was enjoyed by all before the awards presentation began. The ceremony was kick-started with an entertaining performance from celebrity impressionist and comedian Jon Culshaw. The Jericho foundation hosted a raffle to raise money to fund their work of seeking out and helping people who have significant barriers towards being skilled and employed.
The awards ceremony highlighted the stunning projects shortlisted in each category. Grayson presented the Refurbishment award which was won by Walthamstow Wetlands. Grayson’s General Manager Clare Spivey attended the brick awards and commented “Grayson are extremely proud to sponsor the brick awards for the 4th year running; the evening was a fantastic way to celebrate the recent phenomenal UK brickwork projects”.
