Bailey Partnership Celebrates 50 Year Anniversary

Bailey Partnership

Friday saw all six of our offices come together in the city where the Practice was founded, to celebrate our 50th anniversary. It was a chance for our staff to meet each other face to face, some for the first time, and take in the sights and sounds of Plymouth. The sun even made an appearance for the afternoon event which incorporated a tour of Drakes Island, live music from local musicians Andy Quick and Rue, as well as a BBQ at the Mount Batten Watersports and Activity Centre

After 18 months of hybrid working for the majority of our 110 strong team, Friday was a welcome opportunity for us to come together and celebrate our successes over the past year, including the opening of St Austell and Chichester offices. 

Simon Zawada said; “It was wonderful to have our staff come together to celebrate this milestone, especially after the past 18 months. For some, it was the first time they had visited Plymouth and met their colleagues face to face. It is incredibly important for us to celebrate the people who have helped us achieve these 50 years in business, our staff, without whom none of this would have been possible. To have been able to open two new offices during the past year is really quite incredible, as well as adding fire and facade engineering as new consultancy disciplines we can deliver.”

It was the second event in as many weeks to mark the milestone anniversary. Friday 17th September was host to one of the first in-person events to be held in our industry, welcoming our clients and industry colleagues to celebrate at the Custom House, Plymouth with us. It coincided brilliantly with a quadruple win at the Constructing Excellence South West awards held on the same evening in Bristol for the Plymouth Community Homes Devonport Towers project and Saltash Train Station regeneration. 

Partner, Simon Zawada, said: “Looking back over the last fifty years there have been so many incredible moments; ground-breaking projects that have played a significant role in the region’s vibrancy and regeneration. Our achievements in the Constructing Excellence Awards South West bring this together at a milestone time – we are truly honoured and proud to receive such acclaimed recognition.

“At Bailey Partnership we have a fantastic team of experts – our anniversary and expansion is an opportunity to celebrate their achievements, thank our clients and come together to look to the future. Here’s to the next 50 years!”
