Dobbies, a national garden centre chain, appointed Ecoteric as BREEAM assessors. With our help, the new garden centre at Ashford achieved an “Excellent“rating.
Our partner company, SDS Energy, assisted the main contractor and was the BREEAM AP (Accredited Professional).
The building achieved an A rated EPC, incorporating a biomass boiler. The building made good use of daylight, achieving the innovation level for the daylighting credit.
The scheme included cyclist facilities for staff and customers, water saving measures and rain water collection for product irrigation. New wildlife areas have been created, such as wild flowers areas and habitat for insects.
