OVERVIEW

East Building

ADP’s award-winning design for the East Building provides the University of Bath with a state-of-the-art teaching building, designed to high environmental standards.

This three-storey building contains a 350-seat lecture theatre, mixed general teaching accommodation and flexible office spaces. Seminar rooms with interactive whiteboards, lecture rooms with the latest audio-visual facilities, as well as comfortable social areas, are also included in the design.

Sustainability is an important aspect of the East Building and a number of features were incorporated to ensure it achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’. Daylight sensors help to reduce the artificial lighting requirement, whilst Termodeck technology is used for heating, cooling and ventilation. Energy use is reduced via the photovoltaic panels positioned on the roof that offset approximately 10% of the building’s carbon emissions.

Horizontal bands of windows on the long (east and west) façades, provide natural light. The use of timber on several elements of the façade, as well as using the existing site levels and landscaping, softens the visual impact of the building from the adjacent Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
