Costa EcoPod scoops the BCSC Gold Award for Sustainability
02 Dec 15
The Costa EcoPod at Wrekin Retail Park has scooped yet another award - the BCSC Gold Award for Sustainability.
The building is located on Hammerson's Wrekin Retail Park in Telford and is occupied by two retailers, Costa and Subway. The EcoPod concept was developed by Emission Zero and was built in just 13 weeks. The project involved a close collaboration between all parties involved; Costa, Hammerson and their design teams, which included Breathing Buildings. The core building services heating, cooling and ventilation strategy was developed around a low energy e-stack natural ventilation system delivered and controlled by Breathing Buildings. The integration of the heating and cooling systems into the overall Breathing Buildings control system was critical to the success of the building.
Breathing Buildings are thrilled to have played a key part in the success of this A+ EPC rated building.
