Armstrong Point is calling on the small business sector to ‘seize the opportunity’ provided by their latest development, the UK’s First Zero- Energy Cost Business Park, the Manchester Gazette has reported.
The former derelict building which was previously occupied by Britvic Soft Drinks has now been transformed into a new, vibrant, Business Park, offering all tenants zero-energy Bills. This was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Armstrong Properties have developed and completed six Industrial Units with five units already taken. At present there are no other industrial developments in the UK harnessing as many Low and Zero Carbon (LZC) technologies.
The technologies used will raise the standards in industrial developments that other developers will need to embrace and replicate.
Such technologies include, wind turbine, photovoltaic panels, solar hot water heating, transpired solar collector heating and cooling systems, air-source heat pumps, heat recovery ventilation and energy-efficient control systems.
