Doing it the green way - a Leamington-based firm is celebrating 45 years in business.
The building services design consultants, Greenway & Partners are leaving gas-guzzlers behind in favour of greener transport.
To mark its milestone birthday the company has chosen to relaunch its image with a new green initiative and new addition to the team - Zoe.
Zoe is a new, 100 per cent electric Renault Zoe, recharged whenever possible using renewable energy sources and she is key in showcasing Greenways’ recent brand overhaul to the local area.
People may already have seen Zoe driving members of the Greenways team around Leamington, Warwick, Stratford and Coventry, sporting the new company branding and moving around towns without causing any noise or pollution.
Throughout the last 45 years Greenways has concentrated on working with the most up to date techniques, in all aspects of electrical and mechanical services design and renewable engineering, providing clients with innovative, energy saving, sustainable solutions.
More recently the emphasis on these energy-saving principles has become stronger than ever.
Operations director Nik Chambers said: “All of our current projects have a large element of sustainable and renewable energy technologies within the basis of the design, so we thought it was time to practise what we preach.
“We can’t recommend green solutions to our clients whilst driving around our local towns in gas-guzzlers. We hope, therefore that Zoe will be welcomed by all of our clients.”
Greenways’ energy efficient and cost effective electrical and mechanical designs have been installed in flagship buildings throughout the country including: The new £9million refurbishment at Warwickshire College, Warwick School, Ashorne Hill Conference Centre, LSE London, Brit School London, the new production facility at Penso Coventry and the Civic Hall in Stratford.
More recent clients that have used “the Greenway” include Premier Foods, Coventry Transport Museum, Listers, Spitfire Property Group, NHS, NFU Mutual and a number of local architects.
