Is this the UK's greenest workplace?

The Enterprise Centre, part of the Norwich Research Park, has had big sustainability aspirations from the get go. Now that the building is complete, does it meet its claim of the greenest building in the UK? The British Council of Offices (BCO) certainly think it’s one of the best commercial workplaces in the country, awarding the scheme with the Midlands & East Anglia accolade.

The judges praised the way this state of the art facility showcases sustainability and nurtures green businesses. Occupants of the workspaces benefit from shared access to a range of high-quality boardroom, meeting, seminar, lecture and exhibition spaces.


The Trust are looking forward to celebrating the highly anticipated certification of the Enterprise Centre, which is expected later this year. For a chance to visit the building this summer, sign up to the AECB conference.
