PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Business School and Student Hub is a multi-function University building incorporating new faculty functions and cross-University facilities. These include student and academic services, catering, informal learning areas, a range of formal lecture theatres, seminar rooms, administrative and academic offices, as well as specialist post-graduate facilities. The gross building area is 23,400msq and it serves up to 5,000 students and 250 staff. 

The design and materials of the new building work together to create a comfortable ambient temperature and improve the environmental sustainability. For example, water pumped from underneath the building provides free heating and cooling and photo-voltaic panels on the roof generate electricity. Energy efficient LED lighting and low energy PC’s and IT infrastructure were installed.  From the third floor, you can see the living green roof that absorbs pollution and provides a habitat for birds, insects and bees. 

Sustainability:  Since completion, the building has achieved an energy performance certification B (BREEAM), an excellent result for this type of high occupancy building with extended hours of use, they have also utilized on-site renewable energy sources to offset almost 20% of the buildings energy use. 

 

“What attracted us to Cylon Active Energy was their ability to simultaneously monitor a large number of buildings across our campus live and in real time.”
- Mike Neary, Manchester Metropolitan University
