The University of Leicester needed a new Centre for Medicine to replace an existing building and meet huge demand for highly skilled doctors alongside new research. This 40+ million cost was the largest investment in medical teaching and applied research by a UK university in the last decade. The University wanted a new facility that reduced annual energy bills by 80%. By employing Passivhaus techniques, the building recorded a 19 energy performance asset rating, placing it in the A category.
