Aerospace Technology Centre University of Nottingham

The commission for this project was won in a limited design competition under a consultant framework agreement. The University launched its new Institute for Aerospace Technology in 2011 and commissioned this new £4million building to house it.

The new building is situated within the University’s Innovation Park.  The new Institute will drive development of cutting-edge technology in one of the University’s key research areas, with the aim of radically improving all aspects of air transport.

Completed in 2012, the Centre is a dedicated research and knowledge transfer facility which supports development and demonstration of advanced prototype technology.

The building achieved BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard, and incorporates a ground source heat pump driven by a photovoltaic array on the roof of the building, to contribute to energy requirements. The building is clad in zinc coated standing seam roofing and cladding and utilises a high level of daylighting as well as solar control by horizontal and vertical bris soleil.
