Recycle relocate - VERCO furniture to new Severnside HQ

Head office relocation for one of the UK's largest recycling and waste management service providers incorporates an implementation of VERCO management furniture.

Verco and Severnside

Growing demand for its services from third parties in addition to its parent has necessitated Severnside Recycling's move to new headquarters near Caerphilly where two of three buildings on site have been subject to refurbishment by Cardiff-based D&G Office Interiors.

One building accommodates 130 people on open plan administration areas to floors one and two, leaving the top exclusively for housing Severnside's management team.

On this level, D&G Office Interiors have specified desking and storage furniture to seven office suites with complementary boardroom tables to four meeting rooms from VERCO's Corniche range. Seating needs throughout have been met by over 60 VERCO Ocean high back task chairs in leather upholstery.

Responsible for ensuring constant raw materials supply to the UK's largest manufacturer of paper products, St. Regis Paper - itself part of corrugated packaging supplier and stationery and office products distributor, David S. Smith (Holdings) - Severnside has evolved to become the country's top recoverer and re-processor of post consumer packaging.

The company recovers around 1.8 million tonnes of recyclable material annually, 800,000 tonnes of which is derived from its own locations.

In the process, it has also established a nationwide estate of recycling facilities via a growing partner network.

Growth is unsurprising. Recent years has seen a dramatic extension of Severnside services into the area of integrated waste management, helping clients tackle the complexities of environmental legislation and the escalating costs of environmental compliance by the outsourcing of their management.

Leading public and private sector organizations, amongst them High Street names such as Tesco, Morrison's, Butler and Tanner, Waitrose, Co-Operative Group, Somerfield, Next & Lloyds TSB benefit from Servernside's advice and management expertise.

D&G Office Interiors Paul Gardener managed the Caerphilly site refurbishment providing partitioning and flooring to a new building.

Corniche deploys the natural beauty and warmth of wood veneer to effect. Quality materials and craftsmanship typify the range which includes mobile and desk height pedestals, cupboards and bookcases as well as conference tables, a bespoke variant of which were commissioned for this contract.

Ocean managerial/task seating make for a sophisticated solution to seating needs.

Catering to the needs of the discerning user, individually moulded seat and back cushions combine with a fully synchronised mechanism with tension control, lockable adjustment and anti-return safety, allowing these chairs to be specified to any requirement.

"The client sought affordable quality that coupled practical needs to a stylish and contemporary aesthetic," summarises Paul.

"The management floor was a case in point. Corniche is a proven success in servicing board level needs and still cuts it at the final decision stage by offering a mix of luxury, gravitas and modernity. The Ocean chairs are supremely comfortable and complement the tables and storage units perfectly."

Another factor in Severnside's choice of VERCO for its new management suites was the supplier's own commitment to sustainability issues.

"Severnside is managing processes that are environmentally beneficial and it is naturally concerned that its suppliers match its commitment," says Paul.

"VERCO works on a continual process to identify, evaluate and where ever possible, reduce the environmental impact of its operations and its products throughout their life cycle. It's also strong on waste reduction, re-use or recycling."

The overall refurbishment at Severnside has gone smoothly, Paul relates. He is following in the footsteps of his newly-retired father, and D&G Office Interiors founder, Alan, who presided over the refurbishment of Severnside's former headquarters over 25 years ago.
