Admin history
  • Research Property Company Ltd (RPC), incorporated on 20 December 1960, was involved in property management. It was formed to enter into a ground lease and building agreement with Portman Estates in respect of No.41 & No.42 Portman Square, London; to acquire the old lease of No.41 from the Tailors' Union, demolish the old buildings, erect a new building, and let it to the best advantage. RPC later also acquired Donhead House in Donhead St Andrew, Wiltshire.
    The company was connected with the Brewers' Society but (for tax reasons) was administered by the Institute of Brewing Research Fund. In December 1977, the properties managed by RPC were transferred to the ownership of the Brewing Research Foundation.
