Kimpton completes services for carbon-neutral resource centre
Kimpton Building Services has completed the services installation for the £3.3 million Bramall Learning Centre at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Harlow Carr gardens. This 2-storey S-shaped building includes a host of energy saving features, including light tubes to deliver natural daylight, solar panels, wind turbine, lighting control system and ground-source heat pump. It is also expected to feed power back into the National Grid, avoiding the production of over 75 t of CO2 a year.
This carbon-neutral resource centre will provide free education facilities to over 10 00 children a year at the RHS Harlow Carr gardens in Yorkshire.
Richard Kimpton of Kimpton Building Services, comments, ‘The Bramall Learning Centre is a showpiece building for environmental construction, proving what can be done to create contemporary buildings that are truly sustainable, and we are proud to have been involved in helping it achieve its aims.’
