Marston’s Blaina Wharf leisure development in Newport successfully achieved an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating under the New Construction 2011 Scheme.

This was achieved by installing the latest energy saving technology, including solar photovoltaic panels and an air source heat pump. The lighting is provided by LED, which uses approximately 80% less energy than conventional lighting. Fresh air is used to cool beer when temperatures are low enough outside. The building was built to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards, ensuring the environmental impacts of the building are minimised during its life cycle.
