The Project : UCLAN EIC (University of Central Lancashire Engineering Innovation Centre)
The Client : N.G Bailey
The Consultant : Building Design Partnership
The New £34 million plus Engineering Innovation centre is a state-of-the-art facility, equipped to a high standard of quality on the Preston campus at the university of central Lancashire. The Aim is to exploit the location of the university at the centre of one of the most intense engineering and manufacturing areas in the UK and establish UCLan as a leader in engineering innovation. The EIC’s major objectives to deliver:
- An expanded engineering school with the capacity to accommodate increased undergraduate students.
- An increase in applied, industry relevant research linked key Lancashire manufacturing sub-sectors and specialisms, directly supporting the engineering business base in Lancashire and the North West.
- An increase in the number of young people and, in particular the proportion of females, choosing to take up engineering at a local university
A variable volume ventilation system is provided in the laboratory facilities to minimize energy demand, whilst the building services living laboratory showcases renewable technologies such as CHP, fuel cells, PV Panels and heat pumps. The building is designed to achieve BREEAM “excellent” and an EPC A-Rating.
Air Handlers Northern Limited designed and manufactured an Air2O-Airhandlers two stage evaporative cooling system to provide a low carbon footprint solution to heat and cool the building space, with low running cost solutions.
