Renewable technologies and the application of best practice design by our civil and structural engineering consultants were essential in helping this building achieve its BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
To create an exemplar low energy building, as required by the Manchester Metropolitan University, our engineering consultant team undertook extensive research to develop manageable and effective solutions that worked with the architect’s vision.
The experience of our team was integral to meeting the unique challenges in a building of this complexity and ambition. The MMU Business School and Student Hub is an inspiring, landmark building of three separate blocks wrapped in pleated dichroic glazing, that provides a stimulating experience for students, academics, support staff and the general public.
