New Centre for Medicine at the University of Leicester to become UK’s largest Passivhaus
The new Centre for Medicine to be built at the University of Leicester is set to become the largest building in the UK to meet the Passivhaus criteria for energy efficiency, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
The £42m Centre will record a ‘-2’ energy performance asset rating and comes complete with its own green wall and roof, helping pollination and promoting bio-diversity in the local area.
Passivhaus – the fastest-growing energy performance standard in the world – is set to reduce the University’s energy bill for its new teaching and research facility by six times, due to the excellent thermal performance of the building.
Efficient and effective Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
