Pure Offices goes renewable in Swindon

October 6, 2008

Pure Offices, the developer and operator of serviced office centres, is opting for renewable energy technology at its new Swindon centre, which opens in April next year.

The company is installing a sustainable heating system designed to extract the heat from the air around the building and convert it into energy to drive the development’s heating system.

The air source heat pump will provide more than three times the energy it consumes, enabling the building to use significantly less energy than with a traditional gas-fired heating system. There are also additional benefits, in that it will significantly reduce carbon emissions – around 35 per cent less than a gas-fired system.

Nick Smith, managing director of Pure Offices, commented: “There are lots of ways to reduce carbon emissions and energy usage in a typical office building, but many of them involve complicated and expensive technology, that in reality cost more to manufacture both in cash and resources than they will ever save in emissions.

“The heating system we are using is relatively costly to install, but will enable us to increase the energy efficiency of our building and achieve an excellent ‘B’ Energy Performance Certificate rating.”

When complete, the Pure Offices centre at Kembrey Park, Swindon, will provide a wide range of state-of-the-art small offices, available to let on very affordable monthly easy in – easy out terms.

Construction of the next Pure Office business centre will start at Leamington Spa in November, followed by Kidderminster in January.
