Following the acquisition of planning permission, the Hollinwood Business Park, a former brown field site, will see seven new office buildings constructed, all in the style of cotton mills built in the 1800s.
The first of these buildings, Block G, has now been constructed and is benefitting from the installation of renewable solar PV technology to ensure the new business park can have a sustainable future in the decades ahead.
The project has seen the installation of 114 Marley SolarTile®
panels on to the roof of a large building that forms part of the all-new Hollinwood Business Park in Oldham.
Marley’s SolarTile® solution was specified to provide access to a sustainable energy source that will help power the newly constructed site, helping to control energy costs and provide an additional attractive incentive to companies looking to relocate to the business park.
Dan Black, an Architectural Technologist from RG Partnership, commented: “When the project commenced, a feasibility study on solar photovoltaics was explored by the mechanical engineer but it wasn’t part of the planning application”.
However, following further discussions, the client further explored the feasibility and progressed to seeking planning permission for their inclusion.
