This project comprises of a two storey building housing six new research laboratories, covering 2500m² along with an external gasifier plant to research fuels for combined heat and power equipment.
The ground floor houses two industrial laboratories, social space, staff accommodation, meeting room and seminar rooms. The first floor houses five research laboratories, Category II containment Suite and write-up spaces.
Heavyweight mass structure has been utilised both on the internal and external walls thereby limiting the amount of heat gain received internally throughout the day.
Despite being a highly-serviced building, EBRI has achieved a rating of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC ‘A’.
