Huntingdon crematorium takes shape!
Working on behalf of Huntingdon Town Council, The CDS Group are delighted to release some of the first images of the “Green Crematorium” as it is being constructed.
The Huntingdon Town Council Green Crematorium will be the first Council run crematorium in the UK operating green cremation where all the energy powering the super efficient electric cremators will come from the green energy electric tariffs. This ensures an approximate 90% - 95% saving in carbon emissions with each cremation compared to conventional gas cremation.
The £10 million project, including a separate function building and a cemetery that has adopting the green agenda using ethically sourced memorial stone from the UK, is due to be open in early 2021.
The CDS Group design and planning team have taken it through from the very first stage of concept, overcoming the legal might of competitors with planning challenges, finally being awarded planning consent, supervising the tender process and now seeing the development through to completion.
This flagship facility earmarks the first in a number of crematorium that The CDS Group are taking through planning, design and development.
