Sustainability

Built on a site that previously had industrial use, Jubilee Campus is an exemplar of brownfield regeneration and has impeccable green credentials.

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

Awards

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
  • the British Construction Industry Building Project of the Year
  • the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Journal Sustainability Award
  • the Civic Trust Award for Sustainability
  • Lord Mayor's Award for Urban Design

The Jubilee Campus also won international praise with the Energy Globe Award.
