The Beacon incorporates the best principles of sustainable community living and efficient use of scarce land resource.
The Beacon will be the UK’s only multi-dwelling EPC A+ energy neutral building, utilising zero carbon and low carbon technologies, a unique design to reduce energy loss, indoor arboretum to create clean air, onsite gym and leisure facilities, and a roof garden offering unparalleled views of Hemel Hempstead and surrounding areas.
The Beacon will enhance the character of Hemel Hempstead town centre and be part of the regeneration of the town as detailed in the Dacorum Core Strategy. Buildings such as the ‘Gherkin’ and ‘The Shard’, provide prestige to the City of London.
Iconic developments enhance the character of a town and act to lure inward investment into an area thereby promoting economic growth. It is no coincidence that cities throughout the world such as Dubai, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur all seek to have iconic building which attract investment into the city and country. The Beacon will augment and enhance Hemel Hempstead and put to rest its unwanted image as the ‘ugliest town in the UK’.
