ROYAL VISIT IN MANCHESTER TO OPEN THE WORLD'S GREENEST BUILDING

Posted on November 14 2013

The Queen and Prince Phillip are joining us in Manchester today to officially open the new Co-Op headquarters, which has been declared 'the greenest building in the world'. The £100m new office - One Angel Square has achieved the highest ever eco rating for a building.

Its eco-friendly features include a heat recovery system to collect and recycle any waste heat, a rainwater harvesting and recycling system, 300,00 square feet of exposed concrete that acts a thermal sponge and their power is even generated by crops grown on the group's farms. Today, the Queen and Prince Philip will tour the building and unveil a plaque to mark the formal opening of the Manchester offices. Here's some photos of the site - One Angel Square.
