At Hillthorn Business Park, the development as a whole is targeting ‘Excellent’ by the environmental benchmark ‘BREEAM’ 2018.

The roof areas will be fitted with photovoltaic panels which will capture solar energy and convert it into electricity, generating energy that will allow the building users to reduce their energy costs and achieve Net Zero Carbon for each of the buildings. Each Building will achieve an EPC rating of A+(Zero) or better.

Along with photovoltaic panels being installed across the Park each building is being provided with high efficiency LED lighting throughout the warehouse areas and the offices. The office areas within each building are fitted with high efficiency heat pump air conditioning and heat recovery ventilation units providing filtered fresh air throughout that has recovered heat from the air being rejected from each space.

‘Low Flow’ sanitary appliances are being utilised throughout in order to minimise water consumption and Electronic Vehicle charging points are being installed across the estate to encourage occupiers to use electronic vehicles.
