Price Engines Ltd, the company behind the 'Quoter family of online home improvement quoting websites have been moving premises over the weekend.
From our old offices on Pride Park, Derby, we've moved to a brand new office in the slightly more rural setting of Stenson Marina on the outskirts of Derby.
Our new home incorporates some pretty nifty technology which will help us reduce our energy usage, whilst being kinder to the environment.
And as we're now sited beside the Trent and Mersey Canal, if ever an environment was worth saving... let's just say we feel very lucky to be here.
For starters, the hot water and underfloor downstairs heating is powered by an air-source heat pump. The upstairs heating/whole building cooling is powered by a set up of air-con units that reduce power consumption via a clever arrangement of one generator allowing different individual units to blow hot or cold.
And we understand from the buildings owners that there are plans for a photovoltaic solar panel installation in the very near future.
