As one of the most active industrial & warehouse developers we strive to make tomorrow a better place and reduce
the running costs for our customers.
For any new development to be truly sustainable, it has to consider its overall impact on the environment from
design and construction through to the lifespan management.
At Chancerygate we aim to deliver sustainable solutions to help our occupiers to meet their “green” objectives and
provide efficient buildings which generate energy savings and reduced running costs to create a low carbon economy.
Embracing new technologies and methods is central to our sustainable approach and as part of our commitment
our base build specification provides the following sustainable/renewable measures:
- BREEAM Assessment: To review all environmental aspects of the site and the proposed building and to achieving the highest
rating possible, with ‘VERY GOOD’ as our target
- Renewable Energy sources consideration: To investigate alternative sources of renewable energy and to determine their suitability in a Chancerygate development.
- Energy Performance Certification (EPC): To strive to provide a minimum EPC rating of ‘A’.
- Increased air tightness: To achieve an air leakage rate for the building at least 50% better than that required under current Building Regulations.
- 15% Roof lights to warehouse: To increase the percentage of roof lights and improve the natural daylight provision.
- Maximise daylighting: To use sun path analysis to ensure the alignment of offices within any scheme maximises daylighting.
- Provision of user logbook and building manual: To enable the building user to manage and maintain the building systems to maximum effect and minimum energy usage.
- PIR and low energy lighting control: To minimise energy usage in core areas whilst areas are not occupied or when lighting is turned on.
- Provision of photocells and timer controls to external lighting: To control external lighting in relation to outside light levels.
- Design of lighting to minimise light pollution: To review the location of all external lighting to minimise upward glare and environmental impact.
- Travel and Transport Plan: To encourage less reliance on single occupancy private car travel.
- Improved water consumption: By providing specific water saving devices within the plumbing system:
- Dual flush water saving cisterns
- Percussion operated water saving spray taps
- Low water use urinals
- Appointment of Ecologist: To investigate ecological measures of development sites to maintain or enhance beneficial ecological value.
