As a company based in Norwich city centre, we read with interest today, that it has been named as Britain’s first sharing city.

You can read more here.

It’s a vision for the city that embraces collaboration and it’s one we fully endorse.

Norwich has a proud history as a place of partnerships: Norwich Union, now Avada, is still one of the biggest employers in Norfolk.  Chris Sutton and Mark Robins formed a fearsome attacking duo for the Canaries in the early 90s and the city, as well as more recent ones, quoted in the article:

Closer to home, sharing organisations in Norwich include Liftshare, The Feed, Norwich Food Hub, Norwich University of the Arts, Norwich Car Club, Norfolk Network, Goodgym, New U, Lumi and Refill.

We like to think of our own company, Envision CAD, as having these principles.

We share ideas and plans with clients from first meeting to collaboration with planning to putting these ideas into place.

One of the most obvious sharing projects we’ve undertaken, if we can label it as such, was working with The Cliff Hotel, a restaurant, bar and hotel in the up and coming seaside town of Gorleston-on-Sea, involving a second storey extension to match its increasing demand.

The project was a resounding success and Daryn Ferguson had this to say about our “partnership”:

“The high standard of work which Envision CAD produced for us was the main reason why the planning application process for the work went so smoothly. We highly recommend them, and will most certainly use them again should the need arise.”

If you’ve got a project you’d like to share with us, please contact Envision CAD today.
