Sustainability is now high on the agenda.
R G Stones can assist in reducing your building’s carbon footprint by using such features as solar panels; sun-pipes which concentrate natural light to reduce the need for artificial lighting; and sensor -controlled lighting which is activated by people entering a room.
Programmable lighting can be installed that turns off lights when an area is unoccupied and creates optional ‘scenes’ where lighting is customised to give different levels of intensity within a room. On bright days the system automatically dims the lights to save power.
The manufacturer states that savings gained by the installation of automatic lighting control systems often exceed 70%
Examples of technology that may be fitted to our buildings include:
- Grey water systems
- Solar panels
- Ground source heat pumps
- Air conditioning
- Heat recovery ventilation
- Water butts
- Underfloor heating
