Norwich Instrument Services (NIS) have moved their operations to a brand new purpose-built, high-tech facility on Norwich’s Broadland Business Park.
The new office and testing facilities, designed throughout by NIS, has been ‘future-proofed’, with a variety of elements that make the building totally adaptable for the company’s planned growth, while also incorporating a range of energy efficient features.
NIS specialise in the calibration and repair of utility equipment, tracking and monitoring their customers’ assets and providing a wide-ranging capability to repair and calibrate equipment, as well as providing high voltage and cable fault location services.
Features in the building, which is located on Broadland Business Park’s Peachman Way, include an additional top floor that, in time, will provide space for additional staff as well as two further offices in the centre of the building, currently hidden behind walls.
The inclusion of green energy is an important element of the construction, particularly as the company’s customers operate largely within the energy and utility sectors. The new building has a solar PV array on the roof while all heating comes via an underfloor heating system powered by a ground source heat pump. The high levels of insulation also significantly reduce heat loss.
James Allen of Roche Chartered Surveyors, the Park’s sole agents, said: “This is a landmark building on an excellent site at Broadland Business Park. We are very pleased that Norwich Instrument Services have relocated here. It reflects the appeal of the Park for leading businesses."
