Here at Accent, we have been privileged to work with a number of high profile businesses in the design and execution of cutting-edge new workspaces. Creating exceptional workspaces which foster exceptional performance and breed success is our passion, and forms the foundations of our overarching philosophy.
Our commitment to creating outstanding places of work is not just limited to our business relationships. It forms part of our Culture of Care, which extends beyond a desire to enhance the performance and success of our staff, clients and suppliers and into the heart of our local communities.
The Totternhoe Allotments Project
Accent Managing Director, Richard Hibbert, is a regular attendant of the Totternhoe Parish Council meetings. During a recent meeting, he heard plans to create an ‘ECO Loo’ for the Totternhoe Allotments association which had been in the planning stages for two years.
The Totternhoe Allotments are a cherished feature of the local community, used extensively by local residents as well as by families who travel from further afield to enjoy them.
In recent years the Totternhoe Allotments have faced a couple of challenges. The first is a logistical problem, the lack of toilet facilities on site can pose a problem to visitors to the allotment, particularly to those with young children. The second problem is that the finances of the Totternhoe Allotments are extremely restricted, something which was exacerbated following the recent arson attacks, in which sheds and equipment were completely destroyed.
A ‘Unique Opportunity’
When Accent became aware of the challenges facing the Totternhoe Allotments, we decided to step in and volunteer our assistance.
To assist in the construction of the ECO Loo, Accent donated £200 towards materials and sent along two of our most experienced employees, Giles Tuffin & Simon Price. Giles and Simon were happy to spend two days in April in Totternhoe building the blockwork structure for the ECO Loo.
To further assist in the project, Accent put out an appeal to their network of suppliers, to which Strongdor of Carnforth kindly responded with a high specification powder coated security door.
Accent’s Richard Hibbert said of the project, “Creating spaces where people love to work and our culture of care underpins everything we do. Being able to help local residents create a facility which enhanced relaxation and wellbeing was an ideal and unique opportunity for us to promote and spread our core values beyond our immediate area of influence.”
