The £42m Centre for Medicine at the University of Leicester is the UK’s largest non-residential project built and certified to the Passivhaus ultra-low energy consumption standard.
The Centre for Medicine is a striking, modern building that offers state of the art facilities for its users. Two atriums, roof lights, full height glazing and narrow floor plates in the towers enable substantial natural lighting.
Highly intelligent building management systems automatically raise and lower the external blinds to ensure a comfortable environment.
The building is the new home for the College of Medicine and the Biological Sciences and Psychology departments, and provides more than 12,800 square metres of teaching facilities, offices, laboratories, lecture theatres and other spaces for more than 2,350 staff and students.
Comprising a podium base and five-storey and six-storey tower blocks, Passivhaus standards of air-tightness, thermal performance, high thermal mass, low energy use ventilation and maximised natural daylight ensure exceptional energy efficiency and a very comfortable environment for users.
The building’s energy efficiency credentials are outstanding. It was designed to reduce the departments’ annual energy bills by more than 80 per cent.
In February 2016 the Centre for Medicine officially became Passivhaus accredited and is currently the largest Passivhaus building in the UK and one of the largest in Europe.
