For advice, there will be RIBA architects, building suppliers, kitchen and bathroom designers on hand, you can ‘meet’ some of the Grand Designers in The Grand Theatre.
Different parts of the home get more specialist treatment with Interior Room Sets, The Smart Kitchen and The Lavatory Project.
Kevin McCloud and the Grand Design team are great advocates of being eco-friendly and recycling and the show features Kevin’s Green Heroes Live which features eco-innovations come to life and Architectural Salvage which reflects Grand Designs passion for recycling quality materials in varying, innovative, resourceful and unique ways.
