Jan 2011 - New Offices & We're Greener
Have you reduced your carbon footprint? Voyager has!
Due to continued expansion we needed a bigger, more flexible space. Keen to stay local (several staff walk to work) we have moved just round the corner to The Chineham Business Park.
Voyager's new offices have been designed with the environment in mind along with having that ultimate cool factor! The Training facilities are superb and offer a great environment in which to learn. There is also a free bus service which links our office to Basingstoke Train Station (5 mins away), ‘”It's been great for customers sending their new starters for refresher sessions”, quotes Chanie Ravenscroft, Training Manager.
What a load of rubbish - The new waste management solution means all recycling items are collected from site and taken to a local plant that uses a series of conveyors, and other high tech gadgetry to sort cardboard, paper, steel, aluminium and plastics for recycling. Grundon processes approximately 50,000 tonnes of waste each year reclaiming up to 40% of the throughput. All residual waste is collected weekly and taken for incineration instead of landfill. This fuel is then used to power a steam generator which produces cleaner energy for the businesses in the area reducing the demand on the local power station. Add motion sensor lighting inside and out, keyless door entry, recycled water system and other green gadgets and it makes a real difference.
It’s great to know you can be in business without it costing the Earth!
