Two of the biggest causes of energy waste are lack of natural light and heat loss through air leakage. All Panattoni buildings include 15% roof lights as well as ‘supertight’ building envelopes as standard. Our intelligent lighting systems results in a reduction in electricity consumption by up to 70%.
In the summer months a major driver for the overuse of air conditioning is solar heat gain. Panattoni considers the orientation of office space and window positioning at the planning stage to design out solar gain. We also specify glazing with optimum reflectance, reducing the need for air conditioning still further.
Below you’ll find the full range of practices and specifications that ensure our buildings are at the leading edge of low carbon development.
