Selectaglaze premises – St Albans office and factory

SDGs applicable to Selectaglaze 7, 13 and 15
In 2020 Selectaglaze completed an 18-month investment in an extension and refurbishment programme of its premises. Sustainability was at the heart of the project. Some of the energy efficiency measures adopted include higher levels of insulation, a new heating and ventilation system, LED lighting throughout, thermal shutters for the factory doors and a PV array on the roof designed to generate 80,000KW of green energy each year. High level, double glazed windows at the rear of the factory give a lot of natural light and ventilation that improves the working environment. This development provides modern workspaces with a production facility able to deliver high quality bespoke products that enable buildings of all types become more sustainable both for the users and our Planet.
