This striking 21,000ft2 building sits in the heart of the British countryside and features significant sustainability measures.

The Project

Creating a sustainable building was a key factor in the design of this project. It was imperative for the chosen products to meet the utmost energy efficiency requirements. The Trapezoidal roof, Micro-Rib and Flat Panels incorporated into this project all achieve an A+ BREEAM rating, significantly reducing building running costs and creating a sustainable space for AST Signs headquarters to operate.
