KSD Beijing Visit 2014
Two of our directors, Michael Gilhooly and Ozay Ali spent a very productive week in Beijing in early January 2014. The trip centred on KSD developing a strong working relationship with CNBM.
After many months of planning, the pair arrived at the offices of BNBM on 6th January 2014 and delivered a presentation about the potential to develop new housing schemes in the UK using BNBM’s leading edge technology.

Also at that first meeting were Ms.Only Xiao and Mr Shaotong [known as Bob] Li who are 2 senior staff from CNBM. Both were clearly impressed with the potential to widen the partnership with KSD.
The British Embassy Beijing and the KSD Group also hosted a formal dinner attended by senior officials of CNBM/BNBM on 10th January 2014 and a photograph of the event is shown below.
