The building also boasts some of the most sustainable and energy-saving features anywhere in the city.
- the building uses the earth’s ability to store heat in the ground and a pump supplies it to parts of the building
- solar panels heat the water supply for the building
- the energy from burning University waste also heats the building, so central heating boilers are not required
- it has a sophisticated building management system which monitors temperatures so heating is supplied as and when required
- lights are controlled by passive Infra-red controls and day light sensors
