The Castle Street scheme, which Cheshire East Council is funding, has been designed by Ringway Jacobs and aims to introduce lower carbon, sustainable design into all aspects of the project.
The switch to an entirely electric site team was prompted by Cheshire East’s, Carbon Neutral Action Plan. This aims for carbon neutrality in their own operations by 2025.
Jo Wise, Development and Regeneration Delivery Manager at Cheshire East Council said; “Cheshire East Council has set out some extremely challenging targets in our Carbon Neutral Action Plan.
“As part of this commitment, we are encouraging all businesses, residents and organisations in Cheshire East to limit their carbon footprint by reducing energy consumption.
“We are delighted that Eurovia Contracting has chosen our Castle Street scheme in Macclesfield to go entirely electric. This innovative thinking will certainly help us to hit our own targets.”
