Sustainable Measures through Good Practice Design for the University of Lincoln

Time: 12:25 - 12:40

Date: Wednesday 16 October


“For some time, it has been the University’s goal to develop a medical school for Lincolnshire and on 20th March 2018, the Higher Education Funding Council England (HEFCE) and Health Education England (HEE) confirmed that the University of Lincoln’s collaborative bid with the University of Nottingham to establish a new medical school was successful. Eighty places have been allocated to create the new school at the University of Lincoln as part of a major expansion of 25% additional medical students for the UK. Lincolnshire is one of only five regions chosen to have a new school and it follows a rigorous bidding process.” – Harvey Dowdy, The University of Lincoln

This presentation aims to demonstrate how the integration of sustainable measures through good practice design can empower design teams to make informed decisions on site layout, massing, orientation, building fabric and elevational treatment to achieve highly sustainable, carbon neutral buildings. These measures include the following :

  •  Integrated Passive Design Strategies
  • The design of a high performing building envelope
  • Integrated renewable energy sources
  • Specifying energy efficient building services
  • Offsetting the energy consumption of the building

This talk will explore these measures in more detail and look at examples of how we have incorporated these measures as part of the design of the Lincoln Medical School.
