We are proud to say Foleshill Health Centre is used as an exemplar of excellence in the newly updated Promoting Net Zero Carbon and Sustainability in Construction document produced by the Government Commercial Function. As well as the benefits of Passivhaus, the study demonstrates the importance of value for money and how the team at Foleshill provided the ‘consistent focus’ required to ensure procurement, evaluation, contracting delivery and operation were all aligned to meet our carbon and sustainability objectives.
