Ultra-green Armstrong ceilings help npower with sustainability

Ultra-green Armstrong ceilings help npower with sustainability

Ultra-green ceiling tiles by Armstrong Ceiling Solutions have helped npower offices in Birmingham focus on providing low-carbon, sustainable energy, alongside agile working.

Agile working gives employees the freedom to choose where and how they work, and can save considerable time spent commuting into work meaning less power and water use.

As part of this programme, Armstrong’s new Dune eVo mineral ceiling tiles replaced the manufacturer’s traditional Dune tiles as part of a mechanical and electrical upgrade.

Dune eVo was the first ceiling system in the industry to gain Cradle to Cradle™ accreditation.

Being 100% recyclable, the range has been designed to provide class-leading visuals and improved acoustic performance through a new surface that is also brighter and smoother.

More than 2,000m2 of the old Dune tiles were returned to the company’s production facility in Gateshead for recycling while the new Dune eVo tiles were installed over eight floors (550m2 per floor).

Julian Pugh, head of real estate and workplace at npower, said: “Since introducing flexible and agile working five years ago, one of the most important lessons we’ve learned is that agility isn’t a property strategy, it’s a people strategy.”

“This has changed the dynamic of project perception, so instead of just looking at redesigning an estate around the most cost-effective use of property, we’ve also looked at it from the perspective of enhancing the experience of employees using it at every point on their work journey.”
