South Ayrshire Council's ground-breaking new building in Girvan has received a category A+ Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

A building's energy performance rating is a measure of the effect it has on the environment in terms of CO2 emissions.  The better the rating, the less impact the building has on the environment.

The A+ rating means that the energy performance rating for the Bridge Street Depot building is net zero carbon or better.

The rating achieved is a direct result of the energy compliance assessment carried out on the as built, completed building.

The building will become the new base for Golf operational, Grounds Maintenance and Waste Management staff who work in the area.

South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Buildings and Environment, Councillor Martin Kilbride, said: "An A+ rating on the EPC for the Bridge Street Depot Building is exactly what we wanted to see.  It's another great step towards reducing the Council's carbon footprint.

"The certificate also highlights that there are no improvement measures applicable to the building. This is very rare and is a fantastic achievement for our Professional Design Services team."
