Our vision for the University of Leicester is to be a 21st Century campus in every sense. We should be future-proofed against global and localised pressures, meaning we are prepared to adapt to physical changes and embrace new ideas from every discipline.

Our campus should be comprised of Interesting, Immersive and Interactive Sites (IIIS) that are open and accessible to students, staff, the local community and other species. We want to be known as the campus that is so diverse we welcome all forms of life. This is the Leicester for Life promise, to uphold our motto “So that they may have life.”

Our flagship project is the new George Davies Centre, which embodies the principles and standards we aim to incorporate into all future developments. However, one size does not fit all for environment assessment methods and we use a unique blend to get the best results.

Top 3 learnings:

1. A multi-disciplinary approach will always be strongest when future-proofing.

2. It doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated to be effective.

3. Always, always, always communicate!
