Low carbon building developed in Gloucestershire

Low carbon building developed in Gloucestershire
A new low carbon building has been constructed for the Greenshop Group headquarters in Gloucestershire.

The group, comprised of organisations such as Rainharvesting Systems, Consolar UK and Auro Paints, among others, has launched its new building that boasts a series of environmentally-friendly features, the Green Building Press reports.

These include low energy lighting, low flush toilets, solar thermal systems, a log boiler and a variety of insulation. In addition, the flooring is made from recycled rubber and bamboo.

According to Roger Budgeon, spokesperson for the conglomerate, the building was designed to be used as an example of a low carbon property.

"We set out to build a new building that would have a low impact on the surrounding landscape and to show what can be achieved by making buildings as environmentally efficient as possible," he said.

In England, some planning permission restrictions on the installation of domestic microgeneration were lifted in April this year, meaning it could now be easier to make low carbon improvements to homes.
