'Green Apple' Sustainability Award

The Barking Enterprise Centre where Pelling acted as Architects for McLaren Construction has been awarded a Silver Green Apple Award for its contribution to Environmental best practice.

The Green Apple Environment Awards are now in their eighteenth year and well established as one of the major environmental recognition schemes, both in the UK and internationally. The presentation was made at the House of Commons on Monday 12th November.

Innovative environmental elements of the Barking Enterprise Centre include a 'brown' bio-diverse roof, PV panels, and motion detection lighting, contributing to the building's 'Excellent' BREEAM rating. The building forms part of Barking and Dagenham's plans to encourage businesses to the area, and provide them with the flexibility to innovate and grow within the area. It provides 48 environmentally friendly units for small to medium sized businesses, offering shared support, reception and meeting rooms.
