Orbital House is our flagship headquarters in Ashford, designed and built by our in-house team it has proved a comfortable and sustainable place to work. The design showcases all of our environmental principles and efficient office building design. The design won the 2010 Constructing Excellence LSE Award and the 2010 Environment Awards for Kent Business.
“Environmentally friendly” doesn’t have to mean a wooden hut with a green roof, our building is fundamentally sustainable; the feature glazing faces north to reduce solar gain, the roof is designed to allow optimum collection of the rainwater that flushes our toilets, cooling is provided by natural cross – ventilation and the offices are heated (and cooled) by an air-source heat pump.
We’re also proud of our Architecture, the low – profile light coloured cladding gives the building it’s sleek and contemporary look, without breaking the budget. The dark grey and natural wood details throughout the building give the interior a calm, modern feel
