David Luke is furthering its eco-friendly credentials by overhauling its business premises, now named Eco Works.
The site - which comprises four buildings – features general efficiency measures throughout, as well as business rubbish recycling facilities and grass composting.
Another cause for celebration is the company’s 30th birthday this year, the party for which took place at The Monastery in Manchester, on Thursday September 27, 2012.
For more on David Luke – including an interview with MD David Burgess and the inside track on the company’s ‘eco blazer’ – be sure to read your copy of CWB magazine.
