The first sustainable office building has been revealed on the Isle of Wight.

Planning permission for a two-storey building has been submitted, and if granted construction is scheduled to begin before the end of the year.

The building will include a wood chip district heating system, powered using the waste of nearby saw mills and the construction is set to use natural materials for the majority of the build.

In the sustainable building will be the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry for the Isle of Wight. All of the department's six different divisions are to be contained within the single office layout.

Phil Gawne, agriculture minister, said: "It is a very exciting time for the department, the plans for our new headquarters have progressed at a pace and we are all looking forward to the next stage and its eventual completion, hopefully in 2010."

In other news, an old office block in Sheffield has been given a major sustainability regeneration, reports 24dash.com.

The 1960s building now includes twin wall technology to promote ventilation, acoustic protection and a biomass boiler that provides heat from locally-sourced renewable fuel.
