Solarsense client wins sustainability award

Wednesday January 3, 2018

Jackson Foundation Award

We are happy to announce another one of our amazing clients has won an award!

The Jackson Foundation, based in Cornwall is a unique, ambitious and environmentally focused art space. Housed within an ex-industrial building in the centre of St Just-in-Penwith, the Foundation was set up by leading contemporary artist Kurt Jackson and his wife Caroline and hosts an annual programme of quality contemporary exhibitions working in partnership with a variety of environmental and non-profit organisations.

The panel of judges at the Cornwall Sustainability Awards were impressed with the renewable energy technologies installed by Solarsense and noted that ground-source heat pumps, highly efficient solar panels and electric vehicles contributed to the Jackson Foundation’s carbon-positive credentials. This together with the positive knock on impact the Foundation has had on other local businesses in the area, the sympathetic approach to the retro-fit and the build process itself through use of local tradespersons and materials – while preserving the building’s existing structure where possible and improving upon what had perished – all combined to clinch this prestigious accolade. 

Huge congratulations to all those involved at the Foundation for a very well deserved win.
