Description

Currently in the design process and in consultation with the planners, the latest University of East Anglia (UEA) building is targeting Passivhaus Certification and BREEAM Outstanding using renewable materials. This landmark project is part-funded by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), in addition to match funding from UEA, Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBRSC), Norwich Research Park (NRP) and BRE. The purpose of the building is to host an enterprise centre, teaching and learning rooms -- including a 300 seat lecture theatre -- in a building of at least 3000m2 that would also be a "gateway to the university". The brief included a remit to fulfil the ERDF requirements that the building is a demonstration of innovation in design, build and post occupancy. Part of that demonstration was to include facilities for testing the next generation of renewable materials.
