An Eco-Friendly Company
In early 2013 ABtec decided that it was time to move from our home of nearly 17 years to bigger more modern premises.
While looking around the local area at potential locations we came across Armstrong Point an exciting new development within the Wigan area.
Armstrong Point represents an exciting step in the development of sustainable business environments by utilising an array of passive and active ‘green technologies’ to reduce the anticipated energy costs for occupiers to zero.
Fourteen different technologies are used on site including a wind turbine, photovoltaic panels. Solar water heating, transpired solar collected heating and comfort cooling, rainwater harvesting, air source heat pumps and heat recovery ventilation as well as the more conventional high efficiency switching of heat support systems, insulation, specification of LED internal and external lighting.
The impact of all these technologies has been the award of an A+ EPC rating.
