Business Centre 2
The second phase at Hill of Banchory
Business Park involves the construction of three, sustainable, energy
efficient office pavilions. A major part of the design brief for these
buildings focuses on minimising the energy requirements of the buildings
and reducing their impact on the environment. Each building is expected
to obtain a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating. BBC 2 is the first of these new
The salient energy efficient features are as follows:
- The space heating and hot water
requirements of the building are met through a biomass district heating
system which burns wood chips sourced locally.
- Natural and Mechanical ventilation
which will vastly reduce the overall electrical load and minimise the
carbon footprint of the building.
- A rainwater harvesting system which will reduce the mains water consumption of the building.
- CIBSE compliant lighting with dimmable control gear, PIR detection and ‘daylight linking’ system.
