Warwick Conferences' new venue, The Slate, opened in autumn 2016. It can accommodate up to 350 guests and is located on a lakefront location, near the existing training and conference venues Scarman and Radcliffe.
Warwick Conferences is part of the University’s Campus and Commercial Services Group (CCSG). This new 650m2 flat-floor space opens up endless possibilities – it's a blank canvas to work with. It's available on a single customer only basis, offering genuine exclusivity. This contemporary and highly flexible event space is expected to significantly enhance how Warwick Conferences attracts customers and, thereby, enable CCSG to generate income to re-invest in the University experience.
- BREEAM Excellent and EPC A-rating targeted
- Campus district heating system extended and connected to this building
- Feature solar panels.
- Low-energy lighting installed throughout.
We were considerate of the local environment throughout the planning process for this new building. Our plan included providing extra habitats for local birds and bats, and gave special consideration to the plants and creatures that live in and around the lake.
