The shuttle bus plays one of the most important roles for The Vista Centre. The nearest train station is Hounslow West Station, which by walk is 20-30 mins. Now, we wouldn’t expect you to walk for half an hour in the winter to reach the tube station, or stand around in the cold waiting for the 423 bus to come! When we took over The Vista Centre, we hired a 7-seater minibus from a Chauffeur company, including a driver. When [...]
When taking over The Vista Centre, our goal was to enhance the centre’s image and maximise it’s potential. The lifts are one of the centre’s key features and they were in need of a facelift so we undertook a full modernisation programme. There were some major disruptions during working hours, but this was all to improve the overall building image. We’re really thankful to all of our occupiers for their patience and understanding during this period. The lifts are now immaculate [...]
Just a few months after we had taken over The Vista Centre, we started introducing the vending machines. We felt that tenants were having to go to the nearest shops, which meant leaving the building just to get a drink. We felt that introducing vending machines and coffee machines into the building would allow tenants and visitors to access the refreshments they needed without having to leave the centre. Our coffee machine offers different types of coffee, ranging from Lattes [...]
Upon taking over The Vista Centre, one of our first projects was to cut down all the surrounding trees in order to enhance the building’s appearance. When the trees were in place, the building couldn’t clearly be seen from the road – there were even a few complaints from visitors who had been unable to see where the building was from the bottom of the road!
As part of our commitment to providing our tenants with the most reliable internet and telephone services, over the past year, we’ve been carrying out hardware upgrades throughout Vista Centre. Our aim is to bring the premises in line with industry standards. Updates include: 1) Multiple Dedicated Fibre Internet Connections: We house multiple 100Mbps (uncontended, Upload and Download) internet pipes that are delivered over dedicated fibre connections to the building. These services are constantly monitored, both by our in-house [...]
When we first took over The Vista Centre, our lighting bill was through the roof! This was due to the building being open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, meaning the lights are constantly on. Not only is this expensive, in some cases it can also be a fire risk. To address this, we’ve replaced most of the lighting in the building to LEDs. This project is still underway – as well as swapping fluorescent lights with LED [...]
