Carbon Neutral Viewings Available at Birmingham Office Space

Businesses viewing office space at the £40m Calthorpe House, a building offering Grade A office space that is part of the 610 hectare Calthorpe Estate in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham, are being given their viewing in a carbon neutral way thanks to a government supported project that trials electric and ultra-low emission vehicles.

Developers Calthorpe Estates are delivering this carbon neutral viewings of their office space by utilising Mitsubishi i-MiEVs (Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle) from CABLED (Coventry and Birmingham Low Emission Vehicle Demonstrators). These eco-friendly tours add to the BREEAM ΓÇ£ExcellentΓÇ¥ rating that has been achieved by Calthorpe House and bolsters the developers intentions to deliver a high level of sustainability to the scheme as Graham Standring of Calthopre Estates explained:

ΓÇ£Calthorpe House sets the standard on large-scale sustainable commercial accommodation in Birmingham with a host of energy saving features including rainwater harvesting, high levels of thermal insulation and solar control glass.ΓÇ¥

ΓÇ£There is even an electrical charge point installed at the property so we can comfortably travel around the Estate in the i-MiEV. Taking part in this trail is the latest way in which we are actively reducing carbon emissions.ΓÇ¥

Led by global engineering consultancy Arup, CABLED is the largest of eight regional teams to participate in the £25 million Technology Strategy Board’s Ultra Low Carbon Vehicle Demonstrator competition as well as being the first to begin vehicle trials.

Regional Development Agency Advantage West Midlands has supported the CABLED consortium from the start and has invested £2.5 million in the project, ensuring the region’s participation in the competition.
