Case Study

Kirkstall Forge

The company

Number One is the first 110,000 sq. ft. office development at Kirkstall Forge. It opened in 2017.

Now home to Zenith, Bupa, JBM Executive, Oracle, Schofield Insurance Brokers, Swedencare Ltd., OnSite UK Ltd., CEG, Butlers, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd., this building has won 8 awards including the National BCO Award and The Property Wellbeing Award 2018, making it the healthiest office in the UK.

The need

With the office development now home to 10 businesses, it is now fully let. CEG recognised that a sustainable waste management plan was imperative to their building plans. 

The solution

Implementing a completely new waste strategy to the building, B&M Waste Services spent time analysing the waste streams produced by tenants in the building, to ensure that the correct innovations are put into place.

Now segregating food, glass, card and general waste, Number One Kirkstall Forge allows tenants to use all possible recycling streams to their full potential. With future plans to implement a waste monitor, bin press and electric vehicles, the recycling future is looking bright for the development.

Introducing a waste monitor is a fantastic way to monitor tenants’ waste. With clear and comparable data available to see the streams of waste being recycled from each office, incentives and waste reduction tips can be offered when and where necessary.

The feedback

“After a friendly and informative talk with all tenants from our account managers, Steph and Wendy, they felt so inspired that they have started a green sustainability group for the building! We are looking forward to the innovations being put into place in the near future, helping us to further monitor our waste and reduce where possible. Working with B&M Waste has been extremely positive so far and I am looking forward to working with them in the future!”

Rebecca Johnson, Building Manager at CEG
