£60m eco-office construction starts

£60m eco-office construction starts
Construction has started on an office building which promises to have one of the lowest carbon footprints in the UK.

Work on a £60 million water company office building which will be one of the country's most eco-friendly has started.

Severn Trent Water's new building in Coventry was designed to meet the BREEAM 'excellent' and even 'outstanding' standards and is to have one of the lowest carbon footprint of any office, the company claims.

Naturally, the building is to be a showcase of future water systems and will also feature metering in order to reduce water consumption.

As the Energy Saving Trust has pointed out, water consumption contributes to carbon dioxide emissions as its production and delivery uses energy.

The building will also feature various measures to regulate its temperature without resorting to electricity-intensive air conditioning.

Its structure will provide thermal mass, which will help the building keep cool during summer and warm during winter.

David Brown director of Stoford Developments, which is behind the project, said the new building marked an important step for office development on a national level.

He told the Coventry Telegraph: "It will lead not just to the completion of a building that is iconic but one that will provide an excellent environmental benchmark for the design of future offices across the UK."
