Refurb helps SEGRO on road to net zero
SEGRO has completed what calls its most sustainable refurbishment to date.
The European industrial and logistics specialist refurbished 2 Auriol Drive, a 25 year old, 33,000 sq ft unit at its Greenford Park estate in West London to BREEAM Outstanding standards.
The building is set to be net carbon zero in operation with an EPC A+ energy rating. SEGRO installed PV panels across 33,000 sq ft of the exterior of the building, installed an air source heat pump for heating and cooling, smart building management, LED lighting and a green wall fed by rainwater harvesting. There are also measures to boost biodiversity.
James Craddock, managing director, UK, at SEGRO, said: “Wholesale, technology-driven refurbishment of older buildings in our portfolio is an integral part of the execution of our strategy to be net zero carbon by 2030. This project represents our most sustainable refurbishment to date.”
