A reception revamp has provided a welcoming new look for one of the region’s leading business centre – and underlined the environmental commitment which it shares with its iconic tourist attraction neighbour.

The aim of the Deep Business Centre in carrying out the work was to improve the working environment for nearly 40 business tenants and their staff of around 200. In planning the project they also seized the opportunity to reflect the ethos of The Deep aquarium: “For conservation not profit.”

Freya Cross, Business and Corporate Manager at The Deep, said:

We have a very good reputation as a business centre and The Deep aquarium is renowned internationally as a tourist attraction, but not everyone is aware of the relationship between the two.

Our location on the banks of the Humber and next to such an eye-catching and successful tourist attraction is often a factor in encouraging businesses to come here, but there is more to it than being in a great place.

In addition to welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors every year The Deep is renowned for its work in research and conservation, with an environmental policy highlighting its mission to create a deeper understanding of the world’s oceans and river systems.

For our part, we strive to improve our services and facilities to support our business tenants and the re-styling of the reception area is part of creating a better working environment. We invest money from our activities into The Deep aquarium, and we adopt best practice from The Deep in terms of use of plastics and other environmental issues, so we felt it was appropriate to incorporate the new logo with its vibrant colours to get the message across that we too are for conservation, not profit.
