The scheme involves the redevelopment of an old waterworks sited in Shrewsbury Town Centre on the banks of the River Severn.
Part of the building will be converted and the remainder will be new build.
The principles upon which the scheme is being constructed are:
- To construct a healthy building.
- Minimise energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
- Use the most economic and sustainable building techniques.
To achieve these principles we are utilising the following:
- The new building will incorporate a FSC Certified Glulam Frame.
- Exceptionally high levels of insulation.
- Biomass Heating System
- Full Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery System
- A large area of Photovoltaic Solar Panels producing a peak output of 8.8Kw.
- Solar Hot Water Production
- High Levels of Thermal Mass to help prevent summertime over-heating.
- High Levels of air-tightness to reduce heat losses.
- Rainwater Recovery system.
In addition the operation of the building will feature:
- Live measurement and reporting of energy consumption.
- On site separation for Recycling of Waste.
- Tenant Energy Management Policies.
