Looking4Parking.com cuts ribbon on new eco premises
Leeds travel parking specialist Looking4Parking.com has officially opened a new northern headquarters at the multi award-winning eco-development Greenhouse in Leeds.
[UKPRwire, Fri May 11 2012] The new facility offers ample room for the brand to grow its head office operations within Britain’s most pioneering low-carbon development. The new space will provide a new home to the organisation’s customer service and digital innovation teams in the first instance, with the potential to expand at a later date.
Greenhouse is positioned as the UK’s greenest hi-tech business facility, offering 172 homes, offices and studios in a recycled building powered primarily by wind, rain, sun and the ground. It was the property’s sustainable concept and its unrivalled 200MB internet access which initially attracted the airport parking specialist to secure space within the development.
“We wanted to source new commercial space which would fit with both our CSR and digital ambitions and Greenhouse seemed ideal,” said Looking4Parking.com’s Managing Director Martin Mansell.
“The development not only enables us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint, we’re able to save 60% on energy costs and benefit from cutting edge internet speeds. As an online business with huge digital ambitions, what the Greenhouse provides us with in terms of technological innovation will be invaluable to us.”
Looking4Parking.com’s new office space is supported by sustainable on-site event facilities and an eco Apart-hotel which will enable them to meet clients and host training sessions without leaving the new site.
“From my perspective, the on-site conference and Apart-hotel facilities will be an added bonus,” explained Product Manager Philip Green.
“They will enable me to invite our many vendors and partners to the Greenhouse and do business them here in future.”
