We are pleased and excited to be able to finally announce the purchase of the building and surrounding land that was once the home of the Uist Laundry and Cleaning services, located centrally in Balivanich on the Isle of Benbecula.
This significant investment further cements our commitment to building and growing a sustainable business here in the Western Isles.
Further investment will be required in order to shape this land and building to the vision we have for it, the largest investment outside of the purchase will be on making the building more energy-efficient and accessible. Much of this work has started already in order to make better use of the vast space available.
Our current plans will be to consolidate the 4 premises which we occupy on Benbecula, disposing of 2 of these and moving all operations to our newly acquired centrally located Headquarters.
There are no firm timescales at this time as we are in talks with contractors across the islands as to how best to achieve our vision.
What you can expect to see in the short term will be the relocation of the Voove Team to the new Headquarters, as well as key cutting, AV/PA Hire Services and small retail currently being provided at our Market Stance location.
Followed in Late 2020 by our new technology showroom, micro datacentre, training room, electronics repair centre and workshop. We also plan to build a dedicated staff gym, study, and wellness area as part of our new promoting mental health and wellbeing at work scheme.
We would like to thank Peter Carlin of Uist Laundry and Cleaning Services for his support and patience shown throughout this acquisition of this land and building and would like to wish him well with his new ventures.
