We are currently in the process of building The Meeting Place; a new sustainable meeting room in Trafford Ecology Park, Manchester which will be available for businesses to hire in 2020.
In this blog we look at a selection of the world’s greenest offices and meeting rooms and consider whether The Meeting Place could soon be established as Manchester’s Greenest Meeting Room…
1. Qihoo 360, China
These impressive orbs are made from sustainable bamboo and strawboard and provide employees with an alternative to meeting rooms; creating innovative areas to work together or alone.
2. The Shaw Conference Centre, Canada
This sustainable conference centre features a range of sustainable meeting rooms but also an indigenous medicine wheel garden on the rooftop, a herb and vegetable garden that is kept by kitchen staff, and a butterfly preservation garden.
3. Pines Calyx, Kent
This beautiful sustainable meeting room (and wedding venue!) was built with reclaimed materials with waste chalk and clay being used for the walls and roof structure.
