The £10m investment occupies a 7.8-acre plot and contains a fully operational workshop and parts department, with office accommodation and extensive secure parking. The building was recently used as a venue to host Scania’s Net Zero Conference, organised in the backdrop of COP26, where the company spoke about its sustainable agenda and plans for supporting decarbonisation.
The building is completely fossil free and boasts a range of sustainable features including a high-efficiency underfloor Air-source heating system, sustainable drainage and environmental containment in accordance with local regulations, water recycling in its vehicle wash, LED lighting throughout and roof-mounted energy-generating photovoltaic panels.
This new facility is an impressive addition to Scania’s property portfolio and will become the central hub for employees and customers of Scania Scotland. The previous workshop at Bellshill has now closed and all employees have moved across to this new location.
