In 2022, we completed a comprehensive refurbishment and upgrade of 2 Centro in Hemel Hempstead, a 16,000 sq ft industrial warehouse, improving the Energy Performance Certificate from a C to an A. The refurbishment consisted of removing gas fired heating systems within the warehouse and office to install a high-efficiency variable refrigerant flow heating and cooling system, and heat recovery ventilation system, to serve the office suite. This removes dependency on natural gas. Together with the new mechanical and electrical systems, a 62% reduction in total energy consumption per annum is predicted. The works included replacing external lighting with LED fittings and installing PV solar panels to the south facing roof slope. The solar panels have a capacity of approximately 67 kWp, are projected to generate 61,746 kWh of solar energy annually and save 14 tCO2 per year. The project achieved a 94% recycling rate for all construction waste. The site boasts new electric vehicle car charging pods with ducting for additional pods in the future.
A letting completed 6 months after practical completion achieving £17 psf which is a record rent for the location.
