Launched in 2002, the company has one of the first carbon neutral business centres worldwide[2] and was winner of the British Council for Offices[3] Innovation Awards 2007, BCO Regional Awards 2007 and 2008, and finalists in the FX Design and HSBC Startup Awards[4] which awards recognise innovation in design and technology. Each centre is customised with artwork and photography from local artists, themed on the unique geography and landmarks of the local city or region.[5]

They also offer a Virtual Reality conferencing solution [6][7] built on the Second Life platform for long distance meetings.
