Scania’s new Milton Keynes-based UK customer support centre was opened by his Excellency Torbjörn Sohlström, the UK ambassador of Sweden. 

The 6,200m sq site is spread across three storeys and covers nearly 8-acres and has been built, Scania says, with sustainability and the future in mind. As a result, the building will reduce C02 emissions by a minimum of 10%, while water usage will be reduced by 25%.

The amount of energy powering the support centre from renewable sources totals 10%; there are 385m sq of photovoltaic panels on the roof, with air source heat pumps transferring outside heat into the building.
