Designed with the environment in mind
Environmental Responsibility At Bluebell
At Bluebell, we are committed to environmental responsibility and sustainable practices. Our dedication to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting eco-friendly initiatives is at the core of our values. Here are some of the key steps we’ve taken to uphold our commitment to environmental responsibility:
Close to Carbon Zero building
We challenged our Architect and Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing (MEP) team to design a building close to Carbon Zero while maintaining cost efficiency. Achieving an EPC-A rating was a significant challenge, particularly for a commercial project.
Sustainability Practices: Our sustainability practices encompass a range of strategies, including:
- Installation of Solar Panels
- Sensor-controlled Lighting
- Centralised, Individually Controlled AC/Heating
- On-demand Water Heating
- Energy-Efficient LED Lighting
- 22kW Electric Vehicle Charger
- No Gas Usage
Attenuation Tank: We’ve built a 100 cubic meter attenuation tank (100,000 litres) to reduce the risk of flooding, contributing positively to the environment.
Innovations: We embrace innovations like the 5D iTero scan, eliminating the need for impression trays and materials, reducing waste, and giving us a competitive edge.
Natural Light: We have integrated large windows and roof lights throughout the practice to maximise natural sunlight, reducing our reliance on artificial lighting. Our 16 solar panels generate nearly 30% of our energy needs.
Future-Proofing: By leading the way in sustainable practices and adhering to regulations, we ensure our business remains future-proof, avoiding costly fines and legal issues.
Digital Workflow: Our “Bluebell Digital Integration” (BDI) serves as a central hub for staff, patients, and external communications, reducing the need for paper records and enhancing efficiency.
Admin and Finance Function: We’ve transitioned from paper-based to a Digital Document Management system, providing enhanced document accessibility, instant MIS, version control, and security. We use cloud-based platforms for collaboration and digital signatures for contracts.
Waste Reduction: To minimise waste, we encourage our team to use reusable Bluebell flasks and water bottles.
