Skainos Square - The Building
Skainos is designed and built with a host of environmentally sensitive innovations.The building utilises a natural ventilation strategy. This method of bringing fresh air into the occupied spaces has its roots in the architectural concept, which reduces the need to mechanically ventilate or air condition spaces.
The building uses minimum resources to the maximum effect. Heating and water services to all areas are supplied from a central plant room. A biomass boiler plant has been installed reducing CO2 emissions associated with heating and hot water production while also taking advantage of load diversity across the development to increase efficiency. Solar thermal panels generate hot water for the entire building.
Intelligent lighting controls matched to low energy lighting significantly reduces the energy consumption, further reducing CO2 emissions.
