Finalist Project of the Year, Building Services Awards
Highly Commended - Sustainable Building of the Year, The Sustainable Building Services Awards
A groundbreaking 4,400m2 distribution centre for Adnams, the Suffolk-based brewer.
Innovation is evident throughout from the green roof to the vehicle wash and rainwater harvesting system. The distribution centre is also the largest building in the UK to use lime hemp construction. This was selected for its sustainable nature and insulating properties. As a result of using the fabric as a climate modifier, there is no requirement for cooling, minimal requirement for heating, and substantially reduced potable water usage.
