Foundation complete Grafton House move

Ipswich Town Foundation has completed its move into a new office space within Grafton House.

The office, located on the fourth floor of Grafton House, on Russell Road, keeps the Foundation within a stone’s throw of Portman Road, with efforts being made from both the Club and the Foundation to ensure staff on both sides remain connected, working together to serve the community.

The move is the latest in a line of positive developments for the Foundation, and will allow for the continued growth and improvement of the Foundation’s work across communities in Suffolk and the surrounding areas as it strives to produce an empowered, inspired and inclusive community to be proud of.

“We’re delighted to be in our new offices, which provide our growing staff with a positive working environment to thrive in,” said Director of Foundation Dan Palfrey.

Whilst discussing moving out of Portman Road, due to our growth, it was vital that we moved to office space in close proximity to the stadium.” 

The Foundation invited its principle partner, Barrington-Hibbert Associates, along with other key partners and trustees to an office opening evening on 1 November before Town’s Carabao Cup clash with Fulham.

As well as this, Evolve Business Solutions have provided the Foundation with a brand new printer, whilst Hudson Signs have supplied and fitted internal decorations including a timeline detailing the Foundation’s progress since it relaunched in 2019.

Layrd Design, a commercial interior design company, also assisted the Foundation in creating an effective and comfortable working environment.

The Foundation would like to place on record its thanks to its Principle Partner Barrington Hibbert Associates, Evolve Business Solutions, Hudson Signs and Layrd Design for making the move possible.
