It’s here! Today is the day Vanti turns 15 and on our birthday week, we’re celebrating all of our success, taking stock of where we are and making exciting and ambitious plans for the future which we hope will see Team Vanti go from strength to strength.
What started out as a fledgling company with our director Raj frantically travelling around London with AV equipment and tools in a rucksack has transformed into a multi-disciplinary and multi-skilled team full to the brim with talented people who work on projects and with clients in several industries in buildings located around the globe.
Over the past few years we’ve taken on some huge challenges and helped deliver some hugely positive and impressive projects including helping Wilmington PLC deliver an innovative digital classroom at its Fort Dunlop, Birmingham office, designed to help its portfolio of businesses deliver professional training courses remotely to its global customer-base.
We also helped deliver Tottenham Hotspur’s luxury smart hotel, The Lodge, which won the 2020 Smart Systems Award at the Inavation Awards in Amsterdam, and have been working with Petalite to find innovative solutions to accelerate progress towards achieving vertical takeoff and landing for electric flying vehicles in high-density urban areas by creating a more efficient charging process.
Outside of our day to day projects, we’ve also been growing at a phenomenal rate and much like any teenager celebrating a birthday, Team Vanti is also experiencing dramatic changes all the time. Despite the obvious challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, this shows no signs of slowing down.
Since the beginning of 2019, a total of 32 new team members have been hired with 15 of them joining in 2021 alone, taking our team past the 50 mark for the first time. That doesn’t count our canine friends who visit our Upper Gough Street HQ, which are now a permanent fixture for our office based team.
However despite this change, we’re happy to have kept our culture intact, and that Team Vanti represents a group of people who are confident about our shared core values and beliefs: Mastery, Integrity, Discovery, Fun and Care. While we’re constantly looking at ways we can improve, we’re delighted that we have kept our family feel through the pandemic and our workspace continues to be a place where people can bring their full selves to work and reach their full potential.
While the last 15 years have been hugely successful, we’re not resting on our laurels. We have huge plans for our team which go far beyond what we want to achieve day to day. We believe our work can bring huge benefits to everyone, and we can inspire fundamental changes within the built environment.
We can’t wait to see what the future holds, and hope you continue to follow us on our journey!
