Elipta Compliance Building, Ware
The creation a carbon neutral facility to re-house four pharmaceutical operational areas was the challenge given to Simons’ Design and Construction teams by client GSK.
This required a number of technical issues to be resolved including a major question around whether a pharmaceutical facility could ever achieve carbon neutrality plus some industry imposed standards. Undeterred, the team used some unusual construction techniques to overcome these issues and currently the building is the lowest carbon building in the GSK portfolio, becoming ever more efficient as time goes on. With continued usage, the facility will be completely carbon neutral in seven years.
The project is award winning and has gained global recognition as an industry leading zero carbon and climate change resilient facility since it opened its doors in 2016.
