South East Reports / Greenfields Community Housing Headquarters

The Greenfields Community Housing (GCH) Headquarters building in Braintree, Essex is a bespoke office building providing open plan and cellular offices supporting Greenfields' employees, and community facilities providing an interface for Greenfields' tenants. It was awarded a BREEAM Very Good rating.
The study revealed a higher than intended use of energy and consequently CO2 emissions than what had been intended at design stage. While some of this can be attributed to a lack of  optimisation of use of the services,  others  were  the  result  of  changes  made  after  the  building  had  been  occupied.
