Orbis Energy Centre

At the most easterly location in the the UK at Ness Point in Lowestoft, the
R G Carter Building Solutions team have completed a cladding refurbishment project on the Orbis Energy Building, which is owned by the Suffolk County Council.

Built over five storeys, this purpose built business centre aimed at the renewable energy industry can hold up to 38 companies which are involved in off shore renewable energy, supporting both new and existing enterprises. Due to its close proximity to the coastline, the building since opening in 2008, has been subject to harsh coastal winds which have taken their toll on its cladding which needed to be replaced at either ends of the building. As the building regulations have changed since its original construction, upgrading the cavity fire barriers and insulation was form parts of the works.
