Centre for Immunology and Infection University of York
The £3m Centre for Immunology and Infection [CII] at the University of York provides research offices and laboratories housing approximately 150 staff and graduate research students, adjacent to the existing Immunology and Infection Unit at the Heslington West Campus.
The 1,885sq/m building accommodates research laboratories, academics offices, and post graduate write up areas. Internal space planning to ensure natural lighting and ventilation is sensitively managed, as areas such as laboratories, offices and write up areas which have very different environmental requirements.
The building achieved a BREEAM rating of very good, and incorporated a range of resource saving features including natural lighting, passive ventilation, solar shading, energy efficient lighting and water saving measures.
William Saunders were commissioned as architects on this project through its framework with the University and the CII joins a portfolio of work that the practice have completed on Campus.
