St William brings together land owned by National Grid Property with Berkeley's expertise to design, build and market new developments. National Grid prepare the land for redevelopment through a careful combination of demolition, remediation and relocation of gas infrastructure, to meet the needs of each site. The team at St William then lead on all aspects of delivery, from planning to construction, sales and community development. We chose our name to recognise William Murdoch, a pioneering Scottish engineer. At the turn of the eighteenth century, he invented the first practical system of gas lighting. This led to the development of gas works, gas holders and the use of gas that we know today.
