The Centre for Medicine sets a new benchmark for energy efficiency performance in large-scale buildings. Certified as the UK’s largest non-residential building constructed to Passivhaus standard, and with a BREEAM Excellent and EPC A rating, it is an exemplar for future developments of this size and complexity for both the university sector and the UK. This project has resulted in Willmott Dixon’s teams becoming ambassadors for large-scale Passivhaus buildings in the UK.
