Just as sustainability underpins the Millenium Town Park (the venue was ‘reclaimed’ from the St Helier Gas Works which dated back to the 1830’s), so too its service building seeks to step up to its responsibilities. The quiet building incorporates rainwater harvesting, photovoltaics, bat and bird boxes, and maximises passive light and ventilation. All these features have been proactively designed into the architecture of the Utility Building.
