The University of Nottingham Jubilee Campus designed by Make Architects is located in Nottingham, United Kingdom. The new energy-efficient campus of the University of Nottingham, due to complete this month, includes three landmark buildings as well as the tallest public art-form in the UK, all designed by Make, a UK-based architectural firm, established by Ken Shuttleworth in 2004.
The treated facades of all three buildings reduce heating and cooling loads. A displacement system maintains air quality inside the buildings. Energy extracted from nearby lakes, by heat pumps used through a closed-loop system, to cool the buildings in summer and warm them in winter. Rain water and run-offs are re-pumped into the lakes. The design thus displays high standards of energy efficiency, proving to be a benchmark for similar institutions to be developed in the future.
