Background

Once an architect’s headquarters, Home Werks is a shared office space based on Holland Road in Hove that is filled with an array of small businesses. The property is part of the Werks Group collection of creative working spaces in Brighton and Hove, and will be the seventh community energy project that BHESCo has undertaken with the Werks.

A stones throw from Palmeira Square and Hove’s many cafes, Home Werks is an old Victorian property with large windows, tall ceilings and unique architectural features.

BHESCo were approached by the Werks Group to upgrade the heating of the property, which proved to be quite a challenge due to the age and style of the building.

Project Delivery

Following a detailed survey of the property BHESCo have designed an innovative heating solution that will deliver a higher quality of heat at a significantly lower cost for the Werks Group. The new Fischer heaters feature wireless remote temperature controls and a 7 day programming option.

We will also replace the existing lighting with energy saving LEDs, which offer an improved quality of light at a fraction of the cost of traditional incandescent or halogen lights.

We expect the new system to reduce energy consumption by 19,930kWh a year and reduce annual carbon emissions by 5.4 tonnes.

The estimated financial savings to Home Werks over the lifetime of the equipment is £6,290.

Fundraising

BHESCo are seeking to raise the funds for this project from our local community by inviting individuals and organisations to become member shareholders of our co-operative.

When you become a shareholder you will receive a 5% return* on your investment and know that your savings are reducing carbon emissions and having a positive impact on the community.
