Hello There My Friends,
Wembley Stadium is now complete and the keys have been handed over to the FA.
Spanning 315 metres and 133 metres high, the illuminated Arch is the longest single span roof structure in the world.
The Arch and Stadium are powered under a unique 'renewable' energy contract, a symbol of npower's commitment to using energy responsibly and respecting the environment.
Go and see it for yourself! Its four years overdue, is millions of pounds over budget and doesn't appear to contain any renewable energy technology whatsoever apart from being tied to the npower Juice contract. Brilliant! So is this another example of construction companies failing to integrate new technology into buildings and in this case its probably because the project costs were already impacting upon any profits from the construction?
Shame on you Wembley planners - lets hope they can atleast have the opportunity to switch energy suppliers if necessary in future!
