Welcome to our new look
2nd November 2020
We are delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new brand identity including a new logo and website. Underpinning the new brand is a refined ethos that puts our commitment to quality design, collaboration and understanding at the forefront.
Charles Bettes, Managing Director at GPAD, observes: “At GPAD, our focus is on the people that we work with and who come into contact with our buildings, and creating places that those people want to be. Our new brand is centred on those pillars – creating quality places, listening and leading, a personal touch, delivering exceptional value, and working as one.
Our aim with the rebrand was to highlight how our commitment to clients, building users and our own dedicated staff allows us to bring to life exceptional spaces, and highlight those qualities in our approach that mean the most to us and to the people we work with. It was also a way of aligning our brand with our approach and the spaces we have been creating for a number of years now.”
The rebrand represents GPAD’s growth from its establishment in 2002 to a diverse and award-winning practice delivering projects across a range of sectors, including high end commercial and residential developments.
