In a momentous day for the company, GWP Project Services had royal openings to two separate projects within the same day. The National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art in Newmarket was opened by Her Majesty the Queen to great fanfare after almost 11 years of planning, design and construction. The complex Grade II listed refurbishment and restoration scheme, which also includes a new building to accommodate a Museum of Horseracing was BREEAM certified in 2015 to a standard of BREEAM ‘Very Good’.
Whilst a short gallop away in Hatfield, the University of Hertfordshire’s New Science Building was unveiled by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, which completes the opening of a new £50 million facility that provides world class research and laboratory spaces within a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified building incorporating a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) system and roof mounted PV panels that reduce building carbon emissions by over 50%.
The two very different projects reflect the varied nature of GWP’s specialist sustainability consultancy and with both project’s meeting their target BREEAM ratings further demonstrates the successful track record of the company which is now approaching its 50th BREEAM assessed building.
