Golden Triangle Charity Bike Ride

Oxford to Cambridge charity ride

It’s been a sporty few weeks for us in the office! Four of our team recently participated in the 180km Golden Triangle Bike Ride in aid of Maggie’s.The weather was kind to us as we tackled the picturesque but challenging course from Oxford to Cambridge. A great day for a great cause!
Elizabeth House

HB Reavis Waterloo site given the green light

Volterra have been working with HB Reavis on the redevelopment proposal for Elizabeth House in Waterloo. We are delighted that Lambeth Council have given the go ahead for the site adjacent to Waterloo station. Designed by AHMM architects, the multi-use space will include a publicly accessible garden promenade. This is an exciting and much needed scheme to improve a very busy area of London.

Putting our best boot forward…

On 13 September Volterra participated in the IBI Group Construction Cup, a five-a-side charity football tournament featuring 40 teams from across the industry. Despite being relative minnows up against some large multinational firms, we won 3 of our 4 group games to qualify for the knockout stages where we lost narrowly to one of the eventual finalists. Star performer Luke Thurley bagged 12 of our 16 goals, whilst new recruits Ian Mwiti and Ross Bateman seamlessly slotted into the team before starting work with us the following Monday! An enjoyable time was had by all and it was great to participate in an event that supported Mates in Mind, a charity dealing with mental wellbeing in the workplace.

Volterra football team

Game of football anyone…?

Volterra has worked for Arriva Trains on several projects in the past, providing economics and demand/revenue forecasting services for franchise bids including the successful Northern Rail bid and recent submission for the East Midlands franchise. But when Arriva contacted us recently, for once it wasn’t to make use of our transport economics expertise – instead they challenged us to a football match! This was a great opportunity to practice what we preach about the health benefits of staying active. We got people from all levels of the team involved- ranging from Paul Buchanan, one of the Partners at Volterra, to our newest graduate recruit who was not due to start until the following week! The closely fought 8-a-side match took place on 8 October near Russell Square in central London and ended with us securing a thrilling 4-3 victory with the final kick of the game. We always enjoy getting to know our contacts better with social events like these outside the usual office environment. If anyone fancies participating in a football match (or indeed a different activity) with us please contact Kieran Arter: karter@volterra.co.uk
