ZC Office 2

Solarsense has moved into their new zero carbon office.  

We are pleased to announce the completion of our Zero Carbon Office project. After a long, anticipated wait the team have finally moved in and are beginning to settle in to their beautiful new surroundings.

As well as an office the building will act as a demonstration and training centre for businesses and the general public to learn about sustainabilty and renewable energy technologies.

A special thank you to Askew  Cavanna architects, for delivering such a wonderful building for us to all work in.

The state of the art building was designed to generate more energy than it consumes and boasts an extensive array of fully integrated photovoltaics, smart energy controls, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MHVR).
