Hertfordshire Zero Carbon

GWP Project Services played a key role in the brief development and sustainable design feasibility study for the 3,000 bedroom, zero carbon student residential scheme to be provided but he U-Living consortium for the University of Hertfordshire. The scheme, comprising of 3,000 new and refurbished student accommodation bedrooms together with social space and sporting facilities on campus for the University will see a private energy company supply true zero carbon heat and power to a brownfield development, using recycled materials from existing accommodation due to be demolished prior to works completing in September 2016.

GWP Project Services role in the project demonstrates more to our scope of services than just BREEAM Assessment and the extensive knowledge of sustainable design, carbon efficiency and innovative application of existing technology to groundbreaking new levels can result in true zero carbon buildings even on such a large scale.

The University of Hertfordshire recognised GWP’s key role in the project by appointing our services for further flagship developments across the College Lane campus, including the New Science building and redesign of the current Student Learning Zone within the existing Hutton Hall.
