Construction

First Panattoni projects are characterised by innovation, flexibility, speed and convenience.

Not for the sake of simply getting the job done, but to provide our customers with real cost, service and performance advantages.

At every stage of your project, the quality and professionalism our team brings to the task will ensure delivery to the very highest standards.

Above all, it’s our aim to do two things: To build more efficiently. And to deliver more efficient buildings.

“…We have a functional and lean approach to procurement. Quite simply we are able to successfully deliver a new building off a margin that many developers would be unable to approach.”

Oliver Bertram, Development Director, First Panattoni

Building Efficiently

Our aim is to provide high quality, low carbon buildings at minimum cost.

How? Not just by building cheaper. But by building smarter.

We use a carefully managed, efficient supply chain making full use of standardisation and pre-fabrication along with continuous engineering improvement. It’s a technique that’s revolutionised industrial development in Germany. Now, we’re putting it to work on behalf of our customers in the UK.

Pre-design development and offsite preparation in factory controlled conditions are also important parts of our working model, allowing us closer control of quality, finish and long term performance.

They include pre-cast lift shafts, dock leveller surrounds, high quality wall and roof cladding systems, rain screen cladding systems and modular plant rooms.

We work in close partnership with leading construction service providers to ensure prefabrication and other material innovations all contribute to smarter, faster developments with the smallest carbon footprint.

Efficient Buildings

All First Panattoni buildings are designed to reduce their carbon footprint during the construction phase and to minimise levels of embodied carbon in the finished development.

They’re also planned to maximise energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption through the entire lifecycle of the building.

That means as soon as you move into your new building, you’re taking a big step towards achieving your own carbon reduction targets. Not to mention, in an environment of ever increasing energy prices, you’ll be making a considerable saving in running costs.

What makes a First Panattoni building more energy efficient?

The two biggest causes of wasted energy are lack of natural lighting and heat loss through air leakage.

All First Panattoni buildings will include the optimum quantity of roof lights (generally 15%) as standard and are designed with a ‘supertight’ building envelope to minimise air leakage (up to 90% better than statutory requirements).

With the correct intelligent lighting installation, these two elements can reduce the energy use by up to 70%, massively reducing the occupational cost of running the building.

Other strategies for energy efficiency include Combined Heat and Power systems, wind turbine generators, solar PV and biomass boilers for space and water heating.

“…the key to providing the most efficient building is understanding the customers operational use and tailor the solution to maximize the benefits.”
