New name, new home!
Along with our office move, we’re taking the opportunity to simplify our name to Useful Projects and update our branding too.
Introducing Useful Projects
We have been talking about simplifying our name for some time. Sustainable development requires by definition, the ability to deal with complexity. Simple, this is not!
So whilst the outcome of our work is useful, we often have to weave our way through competing objectives and priorities. Indeed, the ability to take a systems approach and develop clear and practical approaches to sustainable development is very much valued by our clients.
Our core service offer remains the same: sustainability strategies for estates, infrastructure projects and masterplans. But we’re also keeping busy with a range of other services, including industry engagement, research, corporate sustainability strategies, sustainable procurement consultancy, training and capacity building, and sustainability assessments including Post Occupancy Evaluations, SKA, Life Cycle Assessments, and carbon accounting and GHG reporting.
To accompany our updated name we have taken the opportunity to refresh our brand. Check out our bold new graphics.
We have moved!
We’re now based near Tower Bridge at Shad Thames. Our new address is The Clove Building, 4 Maguire Street, London, SE1 2NQ. It’s a nice stroll along the river from London Bridge station.
The Useful Simple Trust’s five companies made up of 75 engineers, architects, communication designers, sustainability consultants, education consultants and support staff now have more space, and a much nicer working environment. We designed the new office interior ourselves, which has been an exciting and collaborative process for us. The space will facilitate effective individual and team working, and support employee wellbeing. A sustainable approach to fit-out design was taken of course!
We’d love to tell you more about the direction of our company, and show you around our new home very soon. Get in touch if you’d like to come over for a cuppa.
