Sustainable buildings for fast growing businesses.
The Cross Hands East Strategic Employment Site is part of the Welsh Government's drive to create better business facilities in more rural parts of Wales. Alongside Carmarthenshire County Council, the Department for Economy Science & Transport wanted Cross Hands to become a model for low carbon business developments. Working with the Active Building Centre has challenged contractors to understand how assets could generate and store renewable electricity to meet their own needs and intelligently redistribute the surplus to other buildings, electric vehicles, and back into the grid.
