Green is still the new black


The Green Office is a smarter office and a better office. On the one hand, it is ecological: using nontoxic, recycled, environmentally friendly products. On the other hand, it is efficient: using as little energy and other resources as possible, and putting out the smallest amount of waste as possible. Ultimately, it is healthy with as little noise, visual and physical pollution as possible.

Everyone wants to ‘go green’, but the question always arises: Where do we begin? Cecil Nurse recognises, now more than ever, the need to reduce our carbon footprint in order to conserve our planet’s precious resources. Replacing ‘green jargon’ with sustainable green policies is a Cecil Nurse imperative, as we continue to increase our eco-friendly product ranges and cement our position as one of the few local companies using sustainable board in our desk and storage ranges.

To deliver truly eco-conscious products, Cecil Nurse sources a new kind of material for the job and, driven by our solutions-orientated approach, we make exclusive use of eco-friendly, laminate board sourced from one of the world’s leading melamine-faced chipboard and medium density fibreboard (MDF) manufacturers.

This allows us to market a range of furniture that has an impressive list of environmental qualities, going a long way towards helping our clients reduce their overall carbon footprint, as well as affording them eco-conscious credentials.

Spaces that inspire

Modern offices are made up of areas that blend design, functionality and workspace solutions with aesthetics, employee wellness and performance at work. Take a look at some latest projects that we are particularly proud of.
