BREEAM Outstanding

A new visitor centre in Cambridge for the National Institute for Agricultural Botany has received a BREEAM score of 89.38% at the design stage.

Constructed using cross laminated timber and wrapped with high levels of thermal insulation, and designed to be ‘zero carbon’ in use, it will be one of the most sustainable buildings in Cambridgeshire. Power is generated by a large array of photovoltaic panels, and heating is provided by a biomass boiler which also powers nearby research glasshouses.
