Sky Garden Green Roof on Award-Winning Filwood Business Park

28th July 2015

Bristol City Council have won the award for New Building of the Year at this month's 2degrees Champions Awards 2015 for Filwood Green Business Park.

The business park is the first building in the South West to achieve the 'BREEAM Outstanding' sustainability and environmental standard.

The development was designed for growing small and medium sized businesses, and features Sky Garden's sedum blanket roof system; a wetland ecology area; cycling shelters and electric vehicle charging points. The building is aiming to achieve a 40% CO2 reduction, which is equivalent to the emissions of 276 double decker buses each year.

Sky Garden are proud to have worked on a building with such high standards, and with people who have a proactive vision for future sustainability.

A huge congratulations to all those involved.
