priory displayThe main aim of the project, in addition to reducing the carbon emissions of the Visitor Centre, is to raise awareness and understanding of the eco-technologies installed. The project has brought together a range of energy and water saving measures in one building, which can be easily accessed by visitors, who are able to see the technology in action. Interpretation boards are displayed in the Visitor Centre, to explain to the Borough’s residents, communities and businesses how the systems that have been installed work and to help them to consider the technology for their own homes and buildings.
