Technology centre

Working on behalf of a local authority, we provided planning stage advisory services (under Local Development Order) for a new technology and innovation centre.

The new park will be based on a former nuclear energy facility, providing a mixture of industrial, research and design, commercial and distribution uses. our energy specialists undertook an options appraisal and developed an energy strategy for potential site-wide heating, power and cooling systems as part of the development of the masterplan.

Our team investigated capital investment, operational commercial revenue potential and options for highly sustainable systems that could meet decarbonisation goals through deployment of significant low and zero carbon generators and technologies. Our approach factored in site phasing, demand profiling, occupation rate, density and heat mapping and supply resilience.

The developed energy strategy will provide a robust and modular solution to suit the site build out providing flexibility over a 30-year programme, reducing core operating costs.
