Markham Vale Environment Centre
The Markham Vale Environment Centre is a fully sustainable and environmentally friendly business centre.
The Markham Vale Environment Centre is the flagship business centre for the Markham Vale business park.
Development of the centre has been led by us in partnership with public and private sector partners to realise this innovative and ambitious project.
The £3m project has been part funded by the:
- European Union's European Regional Development Fund
- East Midlands Regional Development Agency
- Alliance Sub-regional Strategic Partnership
- North Derbyshire Charity for Education and Training.
The centre is a 18,000 square foot building. It is fully sustainable and environmentally friendly with a roof mounted wind turbine to generate electricity, solar panels and a 'grey' water recycling facility, to filter rain water from the roof. Short rotation willow is being grown on the site to provide wood fuel for the centre's wood fired heating boiler.
Fourteen workshops, 'hot desk' facilities, business advice and administrative support are available to meet the specific needs of companies in the environmental technology sector. Amenities include exhibition space, conference and training facilities, and full broadband connections.
