Fast facts about this green venue

  • The solar panels on the roof create electricity, which is stored on-site in batteries, powering the whole complex.
  • The ground source heat pump, which is powered by batteries, pushes water around two miles of underground pipework, which creates hot water and heat.
  • Rainwater harvesting supplies the toilets and outside irrigation.
  • There are electric car charging points.
  • This super insulated environment prevents heat loss.
