TAKING SUSTAINABILITY FURTHER
Halo incorporates the best environmental practices in every aspect. It has been designed to achieve BREEAM Outstanding 2018 – the first building in the UK to attain this certification.
Every aspect of Halo has been considered to make it a truly sustainable development. Energy consumption, carbon emissions and water consumption are minimised. A range of other innovative ideas include connecting with Bristol’s district heating network for low carbon heating, along with the regeneration of energy from descending lifts.
