“The Thorpe Park Sustainable Office is one of the first major green construction projects in the UK and demonstrates how Yorkshire and Humber is leading the way in tackling climate change through its economic development. This project proved that construction projects can work in harmony with their surroundings and not at their expense and I am confident that this development will continue to reap benefits, not just for the environment, but also for the companies who locate here.”
