ADP's East Building 'Highly Commended' at RICS Awards

We are delighted that our high tech teaching building at University of Bath has been Highly Commended in the RICS Awards (South West), Design and Innovation category. 

ADP’s design for the East Building is a response to an unusual brief for a purpose-built decant building, which allows departments to occupy it while their accommodation is being refurbished or extended. The highly flexible building also accommodates the Department of Computer Sciences, provides meeting rooms, lecture rooms, as well as several comfortable social areas and offices. A holistic commitment to sustainability from the outset was central to the building’s design and delivery.

Sustainability was integral to the design from the outset, with the building achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. Termodeck technology is used for heating, cooling and ventilation, while solar panels on the roof offset around 10% of the building’s carbon emissions. 

The RICS Commendation is added to two LABC Building Excellence awards for ‘Best Sustainable Project’ and ‘Technical Innovation’.
