Achieving Net Zero Carbon in construction status
Harworth has worked with Winvic Construction, the main contractor for Bardon Hill, to pilot a ‘NZC in construction’ approach at Bardon Hill, which minimises embodied carbon in the building phase. This was achieved through a sustainable approach to material specification and the offsetting of the remaining construction-related embodied carbon through the use of Verified Carbon Standard or Gold Standard schemes focused on tree planting and ecology, renewable energy, and social projects. The units are also designed to be capable of being NZC in operation through integrated renewable energy, enhanced build specification, and the incorporation of green lease terms.
Creating new spaces for local wildlife and enhancing on-site employee wellbeing
Bardon Hill benefits from extensive landscaping, which has included the planting of wildflowers and over 2,300 predominantly deciduous trees, 99% of which are native, together with the incorporation of two storm attenuation ponds. Benches are provided throughout this space, making it an ideal location for relaxation and contemplation, which in turn enhances the wellbeing of employees at the site. In addition, the creation of a 10-acre local wildlife site around the River Sence provides a green corridor which further enhances biodiversity.
