Grangewood’s Brickwork Services' exceptional work on the Gagosian and Newport Street Gallery this year heralds them as leaders in their field.

The Gagosian Gallery exemplifies good facade building, and the judges applauded the way the ‘random’ bond was put to work with the irregularly sized bricks. ‘Careful attention has been paid to setting out and detailing. Movement joints are carefully lined with large glazed openings’. Newport Street Gallery demonstrates masterful brickwork. As a refurbishment of terraced industrial buildings, the gallery now fills the length of the street. The external brick facade was restored and extended with skilful brick blending. The white brick used internally was ‘an engineering masterpiece’, installed with great skill and care by this year’s worthy winners.
