Interserve Retail and Interiors looked seriously at their carbon footprint when relocating to new premises and encompassed as much energy saving features as possible early at the design phase.
The highly successful national shopfitting and interior fit-out division of Interserve Plc has invested heavily into their new facilities and has given much thought into the building's green credentials.
The electrical design and build was completed by leading office fit-out and shopfitting contractor Batchelor Electrical and included extensive new works to lighting, small power, data, mains distribution and computer controlled access control.
The 40,000 square foot premises spanning a 1.89 acre site have been totally modernised to reduce its impact on the environment; from the solar-powered water heater and low-energy PIR controlled office lighting to the latest high-tech chipper and bio-mass burner.
"When we designed our new building we knew that recycling from the joinery workshop was an important consideration as this was previously collected by specialist outside carriers. However, by having an on-site chipper and bio-mass burner we have reduced the collections and been able to heat our factory at the same time by utilising the waste wood!
Batchelor Electrical Ltd understood our vision for this building and worked with us from design through to completion."
