Thinking about the environment runs central to everything we do at Howbery Park. We are creating surroundings that are unique to office space in Oxfordshire and that our tenants enjoy working within. Everything we are building today has to be sustainable for tomorrow.
Howbery Park is home to the UK’s first solar business park with 3,000 solar panels which are connected to the National Grid. The ground-mounted solar array is expected to generate over 682 MWh of clean electricity a year for the Park and its businesses. Our flagship buildings Kestrel House and Red Kite House are both BREEAM Excellent rated and incorporate several environmentally friendly features, including the use of bore hole water to provide natural air conditioning.
Howbery Park has also joined forces with neighbouring companies to promote and develop green transport solutions. Together we have set up a local car-share scheme, lobbied for a better bus service from/to the major local towns, opened a footpath between the Park and Wallingford.
