- It provides a place for surgeons to train in a virtual environment.
- The main access into the building is via a landscaped area and bridge link to the first floor concourse.
- It has central lighting controls for the whole building.
- The roof is a green roof covered in living sedum. This slows down the rate of water run-off in storms, provides additional insulation, and adds to the local ecology.
"When we talk about ground-breaking science with practical applications, we need look no further than the West Midlands. The Warwick Digital Laboratory will provide a high quality research environment for multidisciplinary teams. One aspect of this research is creating realistic virtual environments for the training of surgeons or the design of new operating theatres. This is research which will position the UK at the forefront of medical technology."
- Tony Blair
