Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is one of the largest and most popular universities in the UK. Nearly 27,000 students study with us across three campuses in Nottingham.
The Pavilion, which opened in September and is part of the Heart of the Campus development of the Clifton campus, is a central building for students providing a large IT rich space inside for meeting and working in a relaxing and social environment.
It is the first NTU building to be given a carbon-negative Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of A+. The major focus of the build was to incorporate sustainability, both throughout construction and in the optimisation of the energy performance of the building after completion.
1 Highly sustainable - this project gave us confidence that BREEAM Excellent and Carbon Negative are achievable with very little (if any) uplift to the overall budget, provided BREEAM planning starts early
2 Satisfaction of key stakeholders – this was a successful project in communications 1) due to effective collaboration between client and contractor, and 2) customers and client – surveys with staff & students before about what was needed, understanding this, during construction, and then checking afterwards on satisfaction levels
3 Innovative design & construction – every time NTU commission a project it is healthy to push the boundaries of technology and techniques to advance the assets of the University – after all it is a learning establishment so this should be embodied in all ways.
