At the heart of Britain’s railway operations is The Quadrant in Milton Keynes. The new headquarters of Network Rail is a striking complex that unites over 3,000 people under one roof and has been designed and constructed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. In 2015, The Quadrant:MK won New Build Project of the Year (value over £10m) in the CIBSE Building Performance Awards.
Network Rail would not compromise on was sustainability – the company are committed to being eco-friendly and the multiple ‘green’ features of the building reflect this promise. ‘Living roofs’, recycled rainwater, shaded glass and multiple electric car recharging points are just some of the environmentally friendly highlights of The Quadrant:MK. When it came to selecting a manufacturer to provide sustainable and energy efficient heating systems, Jaga was the natural choice.
Over 1,25 kilometres of Jaga’s Mini Canal trench heating system was installed throughout The Quadrant:MK adjacent to the large glass panels that feature on all floors. The placement of the Mini Canals prevent condensation and unwanted draughts, ensuring the building’s occupants are comfortable at all times.
