When we built St Austell Business Park, sustainability was at the heart of the development.
Every element of St Austell Business Park embraces the highest level of environmental sustainability, including indoor and outdoor design using sustainable materials, grass topped roofs, energy efficiency and rainwater harvesting.
Our building is clad in cedar with an aluminium roof and what’s more, by maximising natural ventilation and daylight as well as limiting heat loss through insulation we’re cutting energy consumption and utility bills, so both you and the environment can benefit.
This has been a very unusual project, in that usually a commercial developer will want to spend as little money as possible, make it as big as possible and get it done as quickly as possible. Peter is quite the opposite. His aspiration for this development is, in my experience, unique. He wanted something that was really special – iconic – and we’ve endeavoured to make it so.
