Our Refurb


The environmentally-friendly initiatives implemented as part of the refurbishment include:

  • We have installed Photovoltaic panels to generate electricity and solar thermal panels to heat water
  • An Air source heat pump heats water and feeds low energy heaters
  • Our LED lighting uses 80% less electricity
  • We’ve deployed energy-saving motion detectors
  • Our water consumption cutting basins has reduced consumption by 64%
  • We have sourced carbon zero soya padded Italian furniture made from recyclable aluminium [including backwash units] and wood certified by the FSC
  • We use Scrummi biodegradable/compostable towels and capes
  • The bacteria resistant floor tiles are made from 40% re-constituted materials
  • We return unused electricity to the National Grid
  • Our environmental-friendly cleaning system uses cold water and we use Enjo micro fibre clothes
  • Using eco-friendly brands such as Aveda
  • Low flow toilets
  • Double sided printing and re-using appointment cards
  • We recycle all plastic, paper, glass, cardboard, aluminium, cans, bags, cardboard and colour tubes
  • We use Ecover cleaning products.
  • The hair we cut is sent along with biodegradable/compostable towels and capes and all food waste to a local firm to compost which is then spread onto local farmers’ fields
  • We use Fair-Trade coffee and tea
  • We segregate all recyclable waste (including foils and empty colour tubes which are deemed particularly harmful when disposed to landfill) which is collected by local firm, One Stop Waste. This measure has seen us successfully divert 93% of our waste from landfill
  • We use 100% renewable energy
  • We are purchasing a hybrid car that will save up to 5.3 tonnes of CO2 per year
