The new Hungry Horse pub in Brislington, Bristol has used Ministonewold Solar PV tiles from Monier Redland to achieve a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating and a reduction in carbon emissions from the notional building design.
Redland’s Ministonewold PV tiles are designed for performance and ease of installation and blend in beautifully with the built environment. The installation can also be expanded at a later date giving maximum flexibility the home owner maximum flexibility.
One hundred square metres of PV was specified for the project. Craig Shepherd at King Associates, the Building Services consultant working for Hungry Horse explained: “Planning conditions stated a need for a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions from the notional building and this was nearly all achieved through the PV cells. Aesthetics were also a key element so we’re pleased with the outcome.”
He went on to say: “Hungry Horse is concerned with all aspects of a more sustainable business model. For example all of its commercial kitchens are electrically fuelled and have heat recovery systems which is why a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating was awarded.”
