Carbon net zero in operations
EQ is the first new build office in Bristol to commit to being Carbon Net Zero in Operation, supporting the City Council’s goal to become carbon neutral by 2030. It is also targeting BREEAM Outstanding. To achieve this goal, the building features several low carbon technologies including photovoltaic units on the roof, rainwater harvesting, efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems and electric vehicle and e-bike charging points. It will also be connected to Bristol City Council’s District Heating Network.
The scheme also features a living hoarding, which fosters greater biodiversity in the city centre and improves air quality.
