Alvéole: The Urban Beekeeping Company
Supporting building owners and managers in implementing innovative, sustainable and shared learning experiences.
As tenants increasingly come to expect sustainability and community from their office spaces and rented properties, beekeeping projects are affordable and easy to implement initiatives once you have an experienced turnkey partner at your side. In fact, hundreds of companies and schools are already enjoying the benefits of having bees in or around their buildings.
The most obvious and delicious? Sweet, sweet raw honey.
Urban apiaries have become sought-after and desirable amenities that contribute to tenant retention and engagement. By offering healthier, greener spaces, building owners and managers stand out from the crowd while directly contributing to the health and well-being of tenants. As a result: tenant satisfaction rates and perceived value get a serious bump – which means your favourite renters are likelier to stick around.
