Cotton Court Goes Green!!

Looking after our enviroment

We are working in partnership with the Green Tourism Business Scheme to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our new initiative involves making Cotton Court a sustainable and environmentally-friendly building. We’ve eliminated polystyrene products from our building, replacing them with paper and cardboard, which are much better for the environment as they are recyclable and biodegradable.

We are showing our employees how to demonstrate green office etiquette, by recycling paper, plastic and cans; emailing internal and external communications; and keeping our printing to a minimum.

We’re looking at other ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in our supply chain. We want to identify environmentally friendly products manufactured and produced locally. We’re looking at other ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in our supply chain. We think this is the right thing to do for our global environment and for our business.

Wiring up former mill as a digital hub – LEP Article

By Comments Off on Wiring up former mill as a digital hub – LEP Article

The owner of a former wire works has said he wants it to become a hub for Preston’s digital industry.

Rob Binns, who owns the former Starkie’s Wire Works at Cotton Court, off Church Street, in the city, said it was already attracting a number of small businesses.

The building has been fitted out with super-fast broadband connection and modern office space to make it ready for firms to move in.

Mr Binns, a prominent local property owner, said a number of digital businesses launched in incubation space at the University of Central Lancashire’s Media Factory were looking at making the move.

He said: “There is only so far businesses can go at the Media Factory before they run out of room, so we are offering grow-on space for them.

“There is nothing like this in Preston where they can get the facilities we have on the terms we can offer.

“I see these kind of digital businesses as the future for a place like Preston, so I want to position Cotton Court as a hub for them.”

He said the building’s conference facilities were already attracting strong interest from training groups and networking clubs.

Mr Binns added property developer Brookhouse Group, which is behind the Horrockses Quarter development on a neighbouring site at Queen Street, Avenham, were talking to him about incorporating Cotton Court into its plans.

The move could involve creating a second entrance into the building.

In June 2012 Cotton Court was proud to host a large event for the Environment Agency. The event was a great success and we received some fantastic feedback from the event organisers and delegates.

“From a personal point of view I would like to thank all of your staff and John and yourself in particular for your hard work in making our event a success. The friendly and helpful nature of your support made the event run much more smoothly and it was good to know that you were there to help with our large number of requests!”
