Morgan Sindall has delivered a £15.8 million project to construct the GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory of Sustainable Chemistry for The University of Nottingham.
The semi-completed timber-framed building was destroyed by a fire in September 2014, 12 months into the 84-week scheme.
The building had been treated against the spread of flames but did not have a fire suppression sprinkler system.
Morgan Sindall has now handed over the finished building, located on the university’s Innovation Park. Its energy needs will be met by renewable sources including solar power and biomass, with excess energy created by the building set to provide enough carbon credits over 25 tears to pay back the carbon used in its construction.
