Romax Technology is a large gearbox, bearing and driveline engineering company which were originally based at the Nottingham Science Park, but outgrew the premises, resulting in the move to these new offices at the University of Nottingham’s Innovation Park.
The new 3100m2 office building comprises of open plan and individual offices, training suites and laboratory spaces.
Anderson Green were responsible for the BREEAM Assessment of the project, which involved analysing and providing consultancy and advice on the sustainability aspects of the design, construction and occupant use.
Best in Class
The building incorporates various sustainable and environmentally friendly building technologies including biomass heating, heat recovery and re-use, waste water recycling, solar shading and bespoke brise soleil fans.
One of the key features installed to improve the environmental impact of the building is through the use of a biodiverse green roof to substitute the land that has been built on. This not only improves the ecology and biodiversity on site, but also acts as a natural irrigation and filtration method for the rain water, thereby reducing the impermeable area.
As a result of the sustainable measures incorporated into the design and carried out during the design and construction process, the Romax Technology offices have achieved BREEAM ‘Excellent’ accreditation for sustainability.
