Just like a stick of rock, if you snapped Ecotricity in half you’d see we’re green all the way through. Our offices are no different – landmarks in our hometown of Stroud, they’re just about as eco as they can be.
We’ve got four buildings in the centre of Stroud – Unicorn House, Lion House, Imperial House and New Axiom House. We’ve made significant improvements to the first two, and we’ve got big ideas for Imperial and Axiom too.
We’ve completely refurbished a 1970’s block of concrete and turned it into a place of beauty.
It's about as eco as a retrofit building can get. From small things like timers on water coolers, to big stuff like solar panels on the roof, everything about the building reflects our ethos.
If you arrive in Stroud by train, the first thing you’ll see is Imperial House.
Formerly an ugly façade, it’s now fully decked with a gigantic green union flag – the symbol of our vision for a green Britain. We’ve given the interior a complete eco-refit, and have plans to make the exterior even ‘greener’.
After filling up Unicorn and Imperial House, and still growing, we needed somewhere with a little bit more space.
We found the perfect building – big enough for us to double in size, and in a great location in the centre of Stroud.
We gave it a thorough green makeover, and it’s now become our flagship building – and a landmark in Stroud.
New Axiom House
Having completed refurbishment on Lion House, and with staff numbers still growing, we needed somewhere new in the town centre.
New Axiom House was the perfect fit – it’s next to Lion House, there’s enough room for a couple more years of growth.
It also gives us a great opportunity to remedy a building that’s long been an eyesore in the town.
