London's Striking Modern Tourist Information Centre Harvests Rainwater and Geothermal Energy
The City of London Information Centre meets exacting environmental standards, and has been engineered to exceed current Part L targets for CO2 emissions by 20%. The structure’s envelope is highly insulated and is heated and cooled using sustainable geothermal energy. Water is pumped 645 feet into the ground via two boreholes and cooled by the earth in the summer – in the winter the ground heats the water, which in turn warms up the building in an eco-friendly manner.
