Best in class
The Greenest building of its type in Europe, and one of the greenest facilities in the world, G Park became the first development in the world to be awarded the new BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) “Outstanding” rating (design stage), the highest sustainable accolade available in property development.
The development employs a host of renewable sources which Anderson Green had to bring together to create the UK’s first truly carbon positive development.
G Park exceeds the UK Government’s Climate Change Bill targets for both 2020 and 2050 in 2009. This not only delivers significant environmental savings, it also creates total energy and water cost in use savings of up to £300,000 per annum.
