BGEN’s Warrington headquarters redesigned into a net zero building

  • Project involved embracing the latest sustainable technologies
  • Solar panels and new HVAC system helped eliminate all scope one and two emissions
  • Net zero status certified by Tunley Engineering, a leading decarbonisation consultancy

BGEN, a specialist, multi-discipline engineering solutions business, has completed the transformation of its Warrington headquarters into a net zero building. The project has seen BGEN invest in some of the latest sustainable technologies as the company looks to achieve net zero status by 2035 at the latest.

“As a business we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint as soon as possible,” says Oliver Groarke, head of future markets at BGEN. “This project has enabled us to lead from the front by showing tangible ways in which organisations can reduce their carbon footprint. As well as supporting our ongoing net zero efforts, the project has provided a great opportunity to implement new technologies which will be of benefit to our clients as they continue their own decarbonisation journeys.”

The works, all undertaken in-house by BGEN engineers, included:

  • Replacing the HVAC system 
  • Fitting solar panels
  • Installing water reduction technologies 
  • Transferring electricity supply to an Ofgem certified eco-tariff
  • Fitting LED lighting
  • Installing electric vehicle charging points
  • Setting up control and energy monitoring systems

The above has enabled BGEN to eliminate all scope one and two emissions associated with the building. BGEN offset all remaining scope three emissions (which in reality can only be addressed and lowered as new technologies become available) by supporting verified carbon reduction projects and planting 207 trees in the North West. Net zero status was certified by Tunley Engineering, a leading decarbonisation consultancy.

“BGEN has now implemented a range of carbon reduction strategies to ensure its headquarters is a net zero building,” said William Beer, chief executive officer at Tunley Engineering. “We’ll be working with BGEN in the future as the company works to achieving its wider net zero ambitions as new technologies and ways of working become available.”

Later this month, BGEN is set to launch its own sustainability offering and will provide a range of services and consultancy to organisations looking to reduce their carbon emissions. The carbon reduction offer includes feasibility & planning, implementation and project management, and ongoing monitoring and improvement recommendations.
