Security

Sadly, in January we’ve had some trouble in the area of Castlefield by our office from three people on bikes with their faces covered in balaclavas. They have been mugging people by snatching their phone. We saw them outside a nearby shop so informed the police, but were told that they could not attend for […]

White Rose

Did you know it is estimated in the UK that there is around £30 billion worth of unused clothes sat in people’s wardrobes and each year we send £140 million worth of clothing to landfill? Did you also know that all the new clothing your household purchases in a year amount to the same level […]

Neighbours

It’s true – everybody needs good neighbours! Living in an apartment block is not the same as living in a house. It is communal living and as such, it is important to be considerate of your neighbours. It’s also easy to forget that neighbours are above and below us as well as next to us […]

It’s easy to forget everything that goes on visibly and that we take for granted. With the forecast predicting more sunshine, we need to turn our attention to our […]

Single-use plastic

We are addicted to single-use plastic but we all need to make an effort to stop using it. Now. Only a small percentage is recycled, and it takes hundreds of years to break down. Choose alternatives where you can: • Start using those bags for life – leave them in the car boot or at […]

Fact Sheet – Laptop

What does the product do? The humble Windows laptop. A lot of us probably own one now. How much carbon does it produce? Whilst reviewing this we did find an article stating that it would emit carbon if on fire and the user should stop using it! Interestingly, all the articles we found on this […]

Carbon emissions

Everybody can do their bit to reduce carbon emissions by lifestyle changes such as driving less, buying less plastic, using less electricity, etc. As a property management company, we can also do our bit to achieve the same by making changes to the communal parts of the building.  As an example, take Islington Wharf which is a large […]

Being ahead of the competition

At Revolution, we have found being different and being ahead of the competition easy. There is an expression we like called “disruptive innovators”, and this is what Revolution is. A disruptive innovator comes to a stale marketplace and then shakes it up. A great example of a disruptive innovator is Uber. Taxis thought they had […]
