Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

ECOL­OGY BUILD­ING So­ci­ety’s head­quar­ters is amongst the green­est build­ings in the re­gion.

From a board­room con­structed from straw bales to its lime­crete foun­da­tion, its de­vel­op­ers went out of the way to make it as eco-friendly as pos­si­ble.

The firm col­lects wa­ter from the roof of the build­ing which is then col­lected in a large tank where­upon it is used for flush­ing the build­ing’s toi­lets.

The head­quar­ters is even topped with a green roof, de­scribed as a ‘re­place­ment habi­tat’ for the land on which the build­ing was con­structed.

Re­cy­cled and re­claimed ma­te­ri­als are used wher­ever pos­si­ble.
