Two University Building Projects have been shortlisted in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Regional Awards

Two building projects recently completed for the University have been shortlisted in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) regional awards in the Midlands, with final judging for the winner taking place later in the year.

The two projects are the Professor Lord Bhattacharyya Building hosting the National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC) and Phase 1 of the Cryfield Village Student Accommodation. Both buildings dramatically enhance the University campus and provide world class facilities for research, teaching and living.

They are extremely energy efficient (EPC A) and sustainable (Breeam Excellent), incorporating renewable energy systems and are assisting the University in the journey towards carbon net zero. Most importantly the buildings are now enriching the experience for staff, students, visitors and the Universities industrial partners, bringing more employment to the region.

James Breckon (Estates Director) quoted, “I am absolutely delighted to see two of our major projects nominated in the RIBA regional awards out of the eleven nominated last week, it is testament to the quality, skills and dedication of all the people involved over the last five years.”
