Is the new building sustainable and energy efficient?
Posted on 28 October 2013
Throughout the design process the emphasis has been on providing a highly insulated thermal envelope to minimise energy consumption. The building is designed to have a lower environmental impact than required by current Building Regulations, with an aim of achieving a Display Energy Certificate B rating in use.
Sustainable technologies are incorporated within the building, including an array of Photo Voltaic (PV) panels on the roof and LED lighting throughout.
