NHS car park becomes first of its kind with built in integrated energy centre

The five-storey car park built in the grounds of Northwick Park Hospital, was constructed by APOCOA in partnership with the health service.

The new structure has 729 car spaces and incorporates a one-of-a-kind integrated energy system. There are 30 electric vehicle charging pints to support and improve the trusts environmental goals.

The 800m2 energy centre will reduce the hospitals energy spend by £1.9 million a year and will save 2,500 tonnes of carbon per annum.

“This regeneration project has solved a number of problems that were facing the Trust.” Said Gary Munn, Head of Property and Commercial for London Northwest University Healthcare NHS Trust.

“The energy centre will both generate income and support out sustainability targets to achieve net-zero carbon emissions”. He added.
