Tour of The Barnum

Thank you to all Nottingham Partners members and our guests from ProCon Nottinghamshire and Nottingham Professional Service (NPS) for joining us for a great event.

A special acknowledgment goes to our newest member, Grainger, who we are thrilled to collaborate with. The event unfolded seamlessly at The Barnum which showcased their first build-to-rent development facilities in Nottingham.

Grainger works in partnership with a large number of public sector organisations to deliver new homes to local communities, including Transport for London, the Ministry of Defence, Lewisham Borough Council and the Local Pensions Partnership.

The Grainger team is dedicated to the common purpose of Renting Homes, Enriching Lives, backed by a set of core values. All Grainger’s build-to-rent developments provide a range of customer benefits and added value, from professional on-site re.sident services teams, resident amenities including gyms, residents’ lounges, roof terraces, meeting rooms and co-working space for those working from home, and superfast 250MB fibre optic broadband.

The Barnum project brings vibrancy into a key area of the city, unlocking a major regeneration opportunity. Including 348 modern fully furnished rental homes, with a mix of studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments.

As the UK’s largest listed provider of private rental homes, Grainger has an operational portfolio of c.10,000 rental homes with over 20,000 residents and a further c.6,000 build-to-rent homes in their pipeline.

Upon arrival, attendees had the opportunity to network over refreshments. The event commenced with a captivating talk by John Wood, the Associate Director (Acquisitions) at Grainger, who provided an insightful introduction to The Barnum. Subsequently, guests enjoyed a guided tour and an opportunity to have a Q&A session with the tour guides.

We’re delighted by the fantastic turnout this morning, and we hope that everyone who attended found the event to be both engaging and enlightening

We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
