We’re delighted to unveil the exciting transformation of our Sheffield office, having invested in a series of green initiatives along the way. 

The 72,000 sq.ft Nunnery Square site, located opposite the Hope Street conference centre, has been refurbished to include a number of sustainable facilities which has seen it gain ISO Energy Management Certification.  

Re-using over 75 tonnes of assets which has saved close to 500 tonnes of carbon, the overhauled building has natural as opposed to carbon-intensive mechanical ventilation. Other features include LED technology which will see the business use up to 50% less energy, as well as waterless technology saving up to 2.3million litres of water each year. 

Commenting on the refurbishment, Richard Carr, Head of Property, Environment and H&S at Webhelp said:  

“The Covid pandemic has led many businesses to re-evaluate what their people need. Webhelp’s vision for Nunnery Square has always been to create a more sustainable building and we’re delighted that our new infrastructure has not only created an aspirational place for our people to work, but that it also supports the UK’s drive to Net Zero. Webhelp’s Global ESG strategy is dedicated to creating more inclusive and sustainable growth and we believe that as corporate citizens, we can do more for the planet and future generations by reducing our carbon footprint.” 

We set about the extensive refurbishment in August 2021, with Doc Designs Ltd, L&P Projects Ltd and Carey Contracts Ltd. A spokesperson for Carey Contracts said: 

“Carey Contracts Ltd were delighted to be selected by Webhelp as their fit out partner for the Nunnery Square refurbishment project. Working close with Webhelp’s Facilities team we have created a new innovative and sustainable workplace for everyone to enjoy.” 

Further plans for our Nunnery Square site include the installation of charging points for electric vehicles, solar panels and a micro forest. 

As a result of ongoing growth, we have a number of new roles at our Sheffield base. If you’re interested in finding out more, we’re hosting an Open Evening for Sales Advisers on 24th February from 5pm. More information on all roles available can be found at  https://jobs.webhelp.com/careers/
