Scottish eco office packs in solar glass, sun pipes and more
September 12, 2008
The new Scottish headquarters of building services company NG Bailey has packed in virtually every eco tech under the sun. The main entrance to the building, called Solais House, faces south and so gets a larger amount of sunlight than the other aspects of the office. The exterior wall of the foyer is almost completely photovoltaic glass, which generated 350kWh over the first six and a half weeks since the building came into operation. The glass costs $1,313.63 per square meter, according to a Sept. 12 SmartPlanet.com report.
