Measuring 310,000 SF (28,800 SQM), this warehouse has BREEAM 2011 “Outstanding” accreditation and was shortlisted for the BREEAM Industrial Award for two years running. Although there was a significant volume of demolition waste on the site, 97 percent of it was re-used or recycled, avoiding the need to send it to a landfill. All of the high-grade aggregate—some 23,000 SQM—was sourced from the site. A key aim was to deliver significant energy efficiencies.  As with all new buildings, the approach was to use passive measures to reduce the need for energy. As such, this warehouse has high levels of air tightness and insulation, a solar wall providing pre-heated air and a 51kWP PV array, resulting in a 45-percent reduction in emissions compared to 2011 building regulations. The design team also looked at the best way to incorporate low- or zero-carbon technologies into the building, including a 51kWP rooftop photo voltaic array together with a SolarWall® to provide pre-heated air to the office areas and a rooftop thermal system for hot water.
