An important feature of the campus is the series of lakes which, as well as being home to a variety of wildlife, provide storm water attenuation and cooling for the buildings.
Less visible – but equally important to the sustainable and environmental credentials of the campus – are the:
- roofs covered by low-growing alpine plants which help insulate and maintain steady temperatures within the buildings throughout the year
- heat recovery mechanical ventilation systems
- lighting sensors to reduce energy consumption
- photovoltaic cells integrated into the atrium roofs
- lake source heating and cooling systems
- biomass boiler installation
- maximised use of passive ventilation engineering
The environmentally-friendly nature of the campus and its buildings have been a big factor in the awards that it has received, including:
- the Millennium Marque Award for Environmental Excellence
