Urban Sciences Building – Site Visit

May 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

G4C  in association with Bowmer & Kirkland would like to invite you along to a site visit to the new Urban Sciences Building at the University of Newcastle.

Science Central is the North East England’s landmark location for science, business, living and leisure. Once supporting a colliery and then a brewery (The original home of Newcastle Brown Ale) the site spans 24 acres of prime City-Centre development land in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne.

The Urban Sciences Building (USB) is the second building constructed on the Science Central site, and represents a commitment by Newcastle University to lead international research into digitally enabled urban sustainability. This state-of-the-art facility therefore accommodates an Institute for Sustainability and Computing Science, amongst others. Using BIM Level 2 on the site and with the building being the new home for the ‘Institute of Sustainability’ there was a particularly strong emphasis on innovation, sustainability and environmental performance.

So in addition, to the more common BREEAM principles, there was a bespoke Sustainability Framework in place to drive sustainability beyond BREEAM with an auditable approach that was designed to enhance targets during construction and operation.

This site visit is limited to 20 people.
