Hatchcroft Science Centre

Hatchcroft is home to the Schools of Science & Technology, and Health & Education, housing all specialist teaching laboratories and skills clinics, as well as two large format lecture theatres.

Despite having to cater for complex controlled environmental systems in the suite of category 2 laboratories, the building was one of the first of its kind to achieve a BREEAM “excellent” rating. The design deploys a range of passive and technological low and renewable energy solutions, resulting in an estimated reduction in CO2 emissions equivalent to approximately 30 tonnes per year.
