£1.4m green project transforms Gloucestershire police stations

Energy efficiency installer Cotswold Energy Group (CEG) has concluded a £1.4 million decarbonisation project in partnership with Gloucestershire Constabulary.

The project replaced outdated fossil fuel boilers with renewable systems.

Air source heat pumps were deployed to enhance energy efficiency.

A large solar array was integrated into one of the police stations, alongside the strategic utilisation of one-pipe system infrastructure – granting better control over heating within the buildings.

The project secured funding through the Salix Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme to drive decarbonisation efforts across various sites, including Stroud Police Station, Coleford Police Station and the Tri-Services Centre.

Jon Bonnar, Managing Director, CEG, commented: “Asbestos identification and removal were key challenges, requiring meticulous planning and execution to minimise disruption to building occupants and their critical operations.”

Mandy Gibbs, Environmental Manager at Gloucestershire Constabulary, said: “The bespoke design of the systems for each building very effectively met our needs, in particular in Stroud where an inefficient, outdated internal heating system has been replaced by one that provides comfortable and controllable conditions for the officers and staff.”
