Tags: partnership | communities | integrated | estate rationalisation

A Presentation from Day 1 of the 17th EAUC Annual Conference 2013

Topics Covered:

The Hive is a sustainability exemplar building evolving from a groundbreaking partnership to create a fully integrated university and public library, which is completely new to the UK and highly innovative internationally.



The Hive highlights the major benefits to be gained from public sector bodies working together in partnership to create a unique experience for the communities they serve. Above all, the project proves that a university and a County Council can share a single vision and serve a single community and is a prime example of estate rationalisation for universities and cities across the United Kingdom.
