A few years ago we built a venue to use for our own staff training. When not used by Sanitas it is available for conferences, works shops, training sessions, board meetings etc. We named the venue @Linnaeus after the famous Swedish botanist Carl von Linne’ (Carl Linnaeus) who lived between 1707 and 1778.
It consists of one large room, with an open fireplace, that can seat up to approximately 40 people and a small room that can comfortably seat up to 18 people. Both rooms open up onto large covered patios with ceiling fans that allow the opportunity to sit both indoors and outdoors. Our courtyards are shaded by ficus and avocado trees. Both rooms are air conditioned. The venue and toilets are of course wheelchair friendly.
The venue was built to be environmentally smart. We collect all rainwater that falls on the roofs and paved areas. To a large extent we use natural lighting to minimize the use of electricity. All patio ceilings were made from recycled timber. All paving cobbles were made here at Sanitas.
@Linnaeus is accessed through the Tea Garden but is separated from Tea Garden guests for privacy. With the good lighting and lots of wall space @Linnaeus is also a great place to host art exhibitions .
Normal availability days are Tuesdays to Sundays, daytime only. Mondays we want to use the facility ourselves, however it can sometimes be made available in conjunction with multi day bookings.
The facility is supported by an automatic back up generator. We have plenty of power sockets for both square and round plugs. Digital projectors are available for hire.
Food and teas will be served as a buffet on our verandas.
@Linnaeus is covered by WiFi.
