Skanska’s facilities at Bentley Works, Doncaster in South Yorkshire have undergone a significant redevelopment, which was completed in May 2015.
The new facilities have 5,000 sqm of workshops developed to the highest environmental standards. These buildings are classed as Deep Green meaning they have a near zero impact on the environment and are future proof. Deep Green is the highest rating of Skanska’s Color Palette™ – which is used to measure how sustainable its projects are.
The redevelopment benefits Skanska’s clients by providing a modern facility for engineering, manufacturing and pre-fabrication of products for the whole construction industry.
The facilities demonstrate how sustainable construction methods help to protect the environment and deliver savings for our clients and their tenants. At Bentley Works, green features such as: natural lighting and cooling, solar panels that generate energy and a dual-fuel heating system that uses biomass and waste oil from machinery, have reduced the workshops energy usage by 40% and the office accommodation usage by 25%.
