Eckland Lodge is Going Green
How are we doing this?
LED & LG7 lighting will be fitted as standard into any new office and factory developments, offering an estimated energy efficiency of 80% with outstanding operational life time expectation. LED lights are free of toxic chemicals producing little infrared light and close to no UV emissions.
AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) are installed in the new Lincoln Building office development. They represent the most efficient alternative to fuel, oil and electric systems in respect of heating and cooling. An ASHP is a refrigeration-based system which takes low grade heat from the air and raises its temperature for space heating and hot water. Heat pumps provide cooling in summer, as well as heating in winter.
Recycling is now something of a necessity for individuals and businesses across Britain. Reducing the levels of waste, we produce is an important part of working to protect the environment in the long term. Eckland Lodge Business Park recognises its environmental responsibility and is committed to recycling its waste and provides recycling bins for paper, cardboard, plastics and glass. Recycling helps to conserve natural resources, reduce levels of pollution and tackle some of the root causes of global warming.
Eckland Lodge has a 3MV Solar Park onsite, transforming sunlight into electricity which is sent to the national grid.
With climate control and renewable energy being so prominent and integral to our future we are very proud to announce that our small solar park performed well in 2019, generating 10% more power than expected.
TRAVELLING TO WORK
Many of our tenants have staff who cycle, walk or car share, cutting the cost of their journey and fuel emissions. A sandwich van attends site in the morning where breakfast, lunch and snacks can be purchased without leaving the site.
As part of our commitment to the environment, the Business Park has a balancing pond and rewilding area, where nature can flourish and create a more biodiverse habitat.
