University Partnerships Programme
‹ Our Portfolio › Creating award-winning ‘eco-residences’
In 2003, working with our long-standing partner Lancaster University, we created a new award-winning eco-student living concept for 963 new-build rooms.
The BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rated-residences sit at the heart of the campus and feature a teaching and learning resource that underscores the University’s commitment to the environment.
Working with Professor Avi Friedman, Professor of Architecture at McGill University, the residences have a 30% lower carbon footprint in comparison to typical student accommodation and feature real-time utility consumption monitoring and recycling schemes, helping residents to reduce their environmental impact.
Constructed using renewable materials and sustainable timber, offsite construction methods included pre-constructed shower pods and panellised timber frame ‘cassette’ technology.
Our commitment to sector-leading environmental, social and governance standards plays an ever-increasing role in securing the most cost-effective long-term institutional investor and capital markets funding of the kind which benefits our partnerships.
