York University Environment Building Receives Planning Consent

Our design for a new Environment Facility at York University has received planning consent.  The project is part of the University’s on-going commitment to expand the range and quality of science facilities at the Heslington West campus.

The proposal, targeting a BREEAM sustainability rating of Excellent, will have a green-roof whilst heat-pumps will use the adjacent lake to cool the building in summer; in addition roof mounted photovoltaic cells will supply renewable electrical energy.

Bond Bryan Managing Director Jonathan Herbert said, “As a major, prestigious Higher Education Institution, York University is an extremely important new client for us, so we are very pleased that the Local Authority has approved this important facility.”
