Blayze Group Stars in Upton Park Thriller!

Blayze Group helped make history this week by participating in the very last football match at West Ham's Upton Park ground.

While West Ham is settling in at the new London Stadium venue - the former Olympic Stadium in Queen Elizabeth Park - a select few were invited by the new owners - Barratt Homes  - to help say a fond farewell to Upton Park with a football tournament in aid of a number of charities.

Blayze Group - Upton Park

The site of the Upton Park ground is now set to be the centrepiece of a new development by Barratt Homes that will incorporate 842 new homes across 15 buildings. The new development in the London borough of Newham will be known as Upton Gardens and will comprise one, two, three and four bedroom apartments as well as maisonettes and a range of amenities.

The Blayze Group football  team is fresh from Blayze Group's own Five-a-Side Property Tournament held last month in aid of LandAid - the property industry charity. 

The demolition teams are due to move in later this week to start work on the site, which will soon be transformed into high specification homes and an attractive community space in the heart of Newham.

Blayze Group was delighted to play a small part in the history of Upton Park - home to West Ham for 110 years - and we look forward to seeing how Barratt Homes retains the historic roots of the site while delivering much needed new homes for Londoners.

I was taken back how consultative Blayze Group’s approach was; their focus on the details of my skills and experience was meticulous. They carry a lot of weight within their sector and employers seemed to recognise that Blayze work with a different echelon of candidates.
