Grenada Electricity Services Ltd (Grenlec)

Grenada Electricity Services Ltd (Grenlec)

This new two storey office building is to be located on a prominent corner site and will provide accommodation for the headquarters of Grenlec’s commercial operation.

Provision will be made for approximately 70 staff members including cellular offices for management, open plan offices for support personnel, together with customer services and bill payment facilities for the public. It is adjacent to the existing Technical & Distribution Operations facility for the purpose of consolidating and streamlining their operations on one site.

The double height entrance atrium washes the interior public service areas with natural daylight and contains a free standing staircase which acts as a backdrop for the reception desk and provides access to the first floor offices and Boardroom. Externally, the project utilizes the local Carriacou stone for decoration. Wide overhanging eaves, aluminium sunshades, roof insulation and windows recessed within deep arches are all features which will contribute to the control of solar gain thereby reducing cooling loads on the air-conditioning plant.
