Morgan Sindall Complete UK's Greenest Commercial Building
Posted on: 23/06/2015

UK firm Morgan Sindall has just completed the UK’s greenest commercial building.

The newly built Enterprise Centre at the University of East Anglia has achieved this status on account of the record-breaking use of sustainability building methods- surpassing both BREAAM and Passivhaus accreditation.

The innovation lab offers both learning and teaching facilities, in addition to workspaces for SMEs and new comers to the low carbon sector. The key sustainable features of the building include locally sourced timber, vertically hung straw thatch panels and recycled sub-base from a local demolition project.

There was a variety of companies involved in this project including BDP as the engineer, Architype as the architect, Adapt Low Carbon Group as the sustainability consultant and Churchman as the landscape architect.

This project stands as innovative phase of sustainable building and is a benchmark in recent developments towards green construction.
