Halton Housing celebrates one-year at Waterfront Point

Halton Housing celebrates one-year at Waterfront Point

18th September 2018

2 minutes

It’s been one year since Halton Housing moved to its new home, Waterfront Point in Widnes, Cheshire.

The move brought together all its 320 staff under one roof from the two previous offices at Daresbury Point in Runcorn and Foundry Lane, Widnes.

Waterfront Point provides customers with a new self-service area and meeting space in a location with better town centre accessibility, close to the main A557 Watkinson Way, numerous bus routes and three popular retail parks.

In May, the office won the accolade of ‘Corporate Workplace Award’ for the North of England at the British Council of Offices UK Awards. The award recognises Waterfront Point as a ‘vibrant’ workplace along with its strong emphasis on the health and wellbeing of employees, and collaborative working.

The building has bright open spaces with a lot of natural light flowing into the building from the large windows and atrium roof. There are numerous spaces throughout the building which can be used for collaborative working, training sessions, informal and formal meetings, making the building incredibly versatile.

Nick Atkin, Halton Housing Group Chief Executive said: “Our first year at Waterfront Point has exceeded all our expectations. Waterfront Point is the culmination of our drive to fundamentally rethink how we work, and how this fits with our modern approach to how we deliver our customer services. Work is something you do not somewhere you go. The use of the space at Waterfront Point reinforces this approach as somewhere people come for a purpose – to collaborate on a particular aspect of work or a project.

It’s brilliant to see that the building has also provided inspiration for others, with visits from a variety of other organisations looking to redesign their space.”

To celebrate the anniversary, staff members took time to share some of their favourite moments from the first year of working from the unique office space.

Happy 1st Anniversary Waterfront Point!
