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.
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
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
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

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.
