Eco-friendly office set to have low carbon footprint

Eco-friendly office set to have low carbon footprint
A new purpose-built office complex that will offer eco-friendly accommodation across 66,250 square feet is under construction in Wales.

It is reported that the Cardiff Waterside project, entitled 3 Assembly Square, forms part of a £140 million construction project and will aim to offer business in the area an environment that has a lower carbon footprint than traditional office space.

According to newbuilder.co.uk, the development is expected to be complete around spring 2009 and will minimise carbon emissions levels and achieve high energy efficiency through state-of-the-art technology such as biomass boilers.

Joy McSmythurs, of Cardiff Waterside's investment and asset managers Knight Frank LLP, said the project would optimise its sustainability through innovative design.

"We believe investment in sustainable buildings will reap long-term benefits for tenants, investors and the city region as a whole, both in environmental and financial terms," she said.

A number of targets have been set in Wales for the reduction of carbon emissions including an agreement that aims to ensure all of the country's newly-built homes are carbon neutral by 2011.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18555865-ADNFCR
