Lancaster University Engineering Building Awarded BREEAM Outstanding

The project comprised of the design and construction of a new four storey Engineering building on the Lancaster University campus, creating a world-class environment with specially designed workshops, teaching laboratories and office areas.

The building provides additional areas for future growth and recent new specialisms such as nuclear, energy and chemical engineering.

The two-winged development with a central atrium houses mechanical workshops and laboratories on the ground floor, electronics and chemical engineering on the first floor with levels three and four providing academic office space, study areas and meeting zones.

The inspirational working and learning environment is fitted with the latest, top-of-the-range equipment, workshops and laboratories with contemporary ‘live labs’, visible from the outside of the building.

The department also comprise extensive chemical engineering facilities, hydropower rigs and nuclear laboratories; and high quality research facilities for marine renewable energy, chemical engineering, manufacturing, micro/nano systems and terahertz.

The building was designed to achieve the new BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating to reflect industry benchmarks and to raise the bar for building efficiency in line with the University’s sustainability and carbon reduction targets.
