Description

THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED. TO JOIN THE RESERVE LIST PLEASE CLICK THE 'REGISTER' BUTTON.

Join us for a unique opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at The Snow Centre, to discover how the extreme environment is maintained and how energy consumption and costs carefully managed.

With a tour and presentation from Managing Director Ian Brown and Technical Manager Dave Wilkinson, we’ll learn how 10 snow guns, two large chillers and 30,000 litres of anti-freeze keep the temperature a constant -2°C and half metre of snow on the 160 metre slope.

They will talk about the building management system used and environmental initiatives incorporated; such the sedum roof that covers the entire building and recently installed LED lighting.

The event is free to attend, as part of the Low Carbon Workspaces programme; a grant scheme that offers up to £5,000 to small and medium sized businesses to make energy efficiency upgrades.

A networking lunch will follow the tour.
