University Of Aberdeen Buildings
The Sustainable Buildings section of the Environmental Sustainability Policy sets out the University’s commitments to sustainability in the context of campus development, whether it be refurbishment or new build.
These commitment were initially exemplified in our Sir Duncan Rice Library and the Suttie Centre both of which secured BREEAM ‘Excellent’ ratings and were recognised nationally. More recently, a number of projects have reinforced these commitments by embedding micro-renewable or low-energy technologies.
Most notably these include the completion of our Green Gown award winning Passivhaus ‘Rocking Horse Nursery’ (our on-campus pre-school hildcare facility for staff and students). Meanwhile, our new Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health building is on target to secure an ‘Outstanding’ in the BREEAM methodology and was shortlisted for a 2015 BREEAM award.
