As the specialist in the design and supply of sustainable hot water applications, we can help address the sustainability of office spaces today. Unless a new build, which will be electrical-based, most refurbishments will look to either improve on existing gas systems or aim to completely replace them with electrical alternatives, typically heat pumps and/or electric heating with a boiler.

 

Preserving The Future of UK Office Space

Office space in England contracted by an estimated 18m square feet during the Covid-19 pandemic, the single largest shake-up of the sector has ever seen. Unsurprisingly developers reacted warily as occupancy levels remained low, and many older offices which no longer met the demands of a modern employer or stringent environmental standards were decommissioned or transferred to domestic applications. This has been especially pronounced in smaller cities and away from central business districts.

Despite this, rents for prime offices – classified by good location, accessibility, and energy efficiency of the premises – are increasing in all major UK cities. This is being driven by developers reacting to pressure to make more versatile office spaces, supporting the growth of agile working and greener by supporting shifting work patterns and meeting new environmental regulations. These workspaces demand fully equipped premises – often with reception, meeting rooms, dedicated cloakrooms and shower facilities, break rooms, on-premises cafés and canteens – and a wider working environment that addresses sustainability in line with corporate social responsibility.

Factoring hot water services into shared office space

Live Metering – The most cost-effective and efficient path to sustainability for your office's future.

If you need assistance with a system for your office, then Adveco’s Live Metering service is for you. Live Metering requires an Adveco engineer to visit your site and install a water meter to provide hot water temperature monitoring for verified water data and comment on the risk of the existing system.

Adveco will return within the month to collect the meter. During these visits we can confirm space and clearances, and installation suitability, and once we have analysed the data give a truly accurate sizing and emissions/costs calculation.

Adveco can then advise on a new hot water system which meets the demands of a building while increasing efficiency, lowering carbon emissions, and managing costs.

Heat Pumps

For new office buildings which are serviced by electricity only, the deployment of air source heat pumps (ASHP) as a method of pre-heating water represent a clear opportunity to introduce low-carbon technology to meet sustainability goals.

Solar Thermal for Office buildings

A proven and extremely reliable technology, solar thermal offers a clear path to reducing CO₂ emissions.

Correctly designed and sized to the application, such as office services, solar thermal systems can generate a considerable proportion of the hot water requirements for buildings that are already on-gas with relatively short payback periods on the initial capital expenditure, while leveraging lower-cost gas to meet peak demands.

Recognising the implications on operational expense when switching to all-electric water heating, we would also advocate the use of solar thermal in new builds to offset at least 30% of annual hot water energy demands, reducing both operational costs and carbon emissions.

Sustainable Hot Water For Office Buildings

With concerns over the rise in emissions – and their effects on the global climate – larger, more forward-looking organisations are already realising and embracing the importance and value of embedding sustainability into growth & development strategies. This distinguishes them from the majority, however, which rely on legacy office space.  Recent studies suggest more than 70% of the UK’s current office stock will still be in use by 2050, the majority of which currently suffer from a lack of retrofit needed to make them more energy efficient, comfortable, and attractive to workers. These ageing buildings will be directly challenged by modern shared working spaces and should be recognised as becoming a primary cause for employment churn in the near term.
