M&E construction firm Balfour Kilpatrick, is relocating its head office, projects unit and Scotland West operations to a greener building.
The firm is relocating to another Glasgow site. The staff move to new offices at Hillingdon Park, Scotland's largest business park, will take place on June 16.
Balfour Kilpatrick, part of the Balfour Beatty group, is hoping to save 87,000 litres of water every year by using the new building's waterless urinals, one of its numerous green measures.
Balfour Kilpatrick's managing director Garry Black said 'The building benefits from lots of natural daylight, energy efficient lighting controls, solar thermal water heating and solar control glass, which will make the building very energy efficient. These initiatives will go a long way in helping us meet and exceed our carbon reduction targets as part of our SEE the future campaign”.
Lumina Building is in excess of BREEAM best standards. All white goods will be AAA rated and the office desks are from an FSC approved source.A car sharing/parking policy has been introduced.
Balfour Kilpatrick has sales of £316m.
