Architecture and Built Environment facilities


In control of designing your future

The Department of Architecture and Built Environment has an amazing range of facilities including our Centre for 3D Design, the Marmont Centre for Renewable Energy, and much more.  All students have access to lecture theatres, group design studios, and the George Green Library.  Take a closer look at some of the facilities and equipment available throughout the faculty that you’ll have access to during your course.


Where you'll be studying

Creative Energy Homes

Our Creative Energy Homes are a key resource, particularly with respect to micro-smart grids, energy storage, demand-side management and occupants’ acceptance of innovative technologies. The seven-house development provides a living test-site for leading firms. Our research findings have fed into the UK government’s Green Deal strategy and the Nottingham Community Climate Change Strategy, and have received widespread acclaim through a number of public engagement activities.
