Sustainable building services consultancy Greenway & Partners celebrates its 50th anniversary in June this year.
A party to celebrate the milestone is being organised for staff and clients at the garden house at Jephson Gardens in Royal Leamington Spa, one of the landmark buildings the company has designed over the years.
The company was founded in 1969 by Des Greenway from premises in Warwick Street, Royal Leamington Spa, where it remained until 2016 when it moved to its current offices in Bedford Street.
Greenways works with clients across the education, health, public, residential, industrial and commercial sectors. It has worked on many historic projects and listed buildings such as National Trust Wimpole Gardens, Hanley Park in Stoke on Trent, National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire and Lenton’s Lane Cemetery and War Memorial Park in Coventry.
The company produces feasibility studies on renewable and sustainable energy solutions to reduce their energy costs and their reliance on Grid connected supplies. Their engineers have designed and installed ground and air source heat pumps, solar hot water production, solar heating, photovoltaics, sedum ‘green’ roofs, bio-mass boilers, wind turbines and even water wheels to generate clean energy. They also regularly design LED and intelligent lighting systems to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings.
Paul Howell, director of electrical services at Greenways said, “We are delighted to be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year. We owe much of our success and longevity to our skilled, dedicated and hardworking team. Our senior staff members are shareholders so have a vested interest in our business and we encourage staff to work their way up within the company. In return, they have helped us develop long term relationships with our clients resulting in most of our work coming from repeat business or referrals. We look forward to Greenways expanding in the future and continuing its leading position in sustainable energy solutions”.
