RAD Building, University of Nottingham

The Research Acceleration and Demonstration (RAD) building is a brand new £5.4m research facility for the University of Nottingham. It will be one of the most energy efficient research facilities in the UK, combining the rigorous sustainability standards of BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) with the principles of the Passivhaus system. 

This event will use the building as a case study to demonstrate the effective delivery of a Passivhaus project. Featuring presentations from the architects, the construction company and end users, the seminar will give a behind the scenes insight into the complexities associated with combining two sustainability standards.
