CBRE Volunteers Helped Cleaning the Chain Bridge
Volunteers of CB Richard Ellis joined the initiative of the „I Love Budapest” Movement aiming to clean the Chain Bridge in Budapest of tags and graffiti.
On a cold windy day the “I Love Budapest” Movement organised a volunteer work event to improve the look of the Chain Brigde (Lánchíd), one of the prominent monuments of the Hungarian capital and part of the World Heritage. Many celebrities, as well as members of the private and civil sectors worked hard to clean the damaged surfaces with environment friendly techniques considering the river Danube.
The active participation of CB Richard Ellis volunteers is yet another example of the efforts the world’s largest property advisor makes to create a better environment. “The enthusiasm and dedication of our colleagues to take care of our architectural heritage and make our beautiful capital ever nicer is a fine example of the attitude that characterises our work with our clients as well. I am happy that so many of the CBRE staff took the challenge to clean one of the symbols of Budapest from the unsightly tags.” – said Adrienne Konthur, Managing Director of CB Richard Ellis Hungary.
CBRE has also launched the 2009 Urban Photographer of the Year Award, which is designed to capture the essence of urban life. Now in its second year, the competition sets a brief for photographers to explore working life in towns and cities at any time during a 24-hour day.
