SPACE-2 Group

Sustainable Production, Assets & Creative Ecosystems (White)

The SPACE-2 Group comprises a number of businesses and initiatives that focus on sustainability. We operate across the media and event production, property, digital sectors and related supply-chains by maximising the opportunities generated and taking a creative ecosystem approach. We work with strategic landowners, commercial property companies, media, event production businesses and clusters of SMEs. In defined geographical areas of the UK, the Group’s companies focus on researching, developing and providing niche ‘sustainability-first’ services to an ever-growing client base.

Our primary focus is to deliver best practice in creative ecosystems that support and inspire the creative content industry to reduce their carbon emissions, their use of single-use materials and help mitigate all production processes’ negative environmental impacts. By applying over 18 years’ experience and having worked on over 3,800 location-based activities, we are well placed to understand the sustainability challenges our clients face.

The ’well-being’ agenda has become a critical component in how businesses operate.  Employees and freelancers choose who they work for, where they work and how consumers engage with and value brands. Our commitment across all our business initiatives is to factor in how we operate, how we develop our businesses and how we advise clients and partners.

As a group we have made extensive commitments to the sustainability agenda including becoming a member of Sustainability West Midlands and committing to the West Midlands Net Zero Pledge.

The SPACE-2 Group’s extensive team of advisors, consultants, stakeholders, suppliers and with the significant network of contacts over the last 18 years, we have access to companies, business support organisations and technology providers. This enables the Group to develop innovative, responsive, low-carbon business models and to address the challenges facing these sectors and locations.

There continues to be significant change for good in how businesses operate, not least around the workplace, people, communities and the planet. The linear models relied upon before are no longer fit for purpose and new circular business ecosystems are coming to the fore. Adopting sustainable practices and the impact of transitioning to Net Zero within businesses, not least in investment and production terms, as well as day-to-day operations, sees fundamental changes being adopted. In line with the SPACE-2 Group’s wider focus we are committed to offering advice and delivering on how changes can be harnessed for sustainable growth.

Our consultants come from a range of backgrounds that perhaps more than ever will help support businesses that believe linear business models are redundant,  and where the adoption of flexibility, resilience and crucially sustainability are key. We have extensive knowledge of and track records in setting up and running companies, as well as supporting business owners in developing their businesses. Our consultants also have the benefit of entrepreneurial, financial and operational experience from a range of sectors including circular economy, sustainability, property, media and event production. 

SPACE-2 Consulting has undertaken projects ranging from mapping regional infrastructure, providing business case reports for creative hub developments to overseeing practical delivery projects for studios and film production. We are in the process of running a test pilot scheme on our sustainability production framework with our clients. We are also approaching new strategic partners with aligned circular sustainability goals.

Whether you are looking to build sets, need design inspiration or are looking to repurpose/recycle project resources, we’re keen to discuss how we can help and in coming months, we’ll be working with a range of film/TV, theatre and event projects to help us achieve “best practice” in our service offering.

With a central logistics and storage hub in the West Midlands, we can service projects across the UK working with our roster of approved haulage companies and waste transformers to ensure the most efficient collection or delivery of items.

Revival Props Logo

Revival Props has become a truly circular zero-waste company where we reuse, rehire and upcycle furniture diverting it from landfill. 

We have recently been accredited as an Albert (BAFTA) approved supplier.

Revival Props is not a traditional prop house. Think of it as a props sourcing and delivery service. Through our national network of property and facilities partners, we aim to re-use and recycle items contained within hundreds of properties, predominantly commercial buildings, offices and telephone exchanges. These would otherwise be destined for landfill. We primarily specialise in retro office furniture and IT, communication and testing equipment. Our focus is on items dating from the 1950s-1990s (although we also stock contemporary furniture). The scale of our partner’s portfolios means we can often source items in bulk (6+) so if you need multiples of lockers, filing cabinets, seating and IT equipment from the second half of the 20th century, we’re the company to contact.
