PROJECT: Kings House Reuse Project 2016-17
The Kings House Reuse project was part of an ambitious modernisation programme that changed the way the council thinks about its offices, assets and procurement. Running from January 2016 to May 2017 and involved emptying the largest office block in the city (100,000 square feet) of 1,000 staff, along with all their furniture and equipment. The city council has shown leadership in initiating a partnership with a local citizen and charity who developed an innovate way to minimise waste which also changed staff behaviour, attitude and understanding. The model is replicable and enables culture change, budget savings and maximises waste reduction.
