Jubilee Campus, The University of Nottingham

Client: University of Nottingham

Location: Nottingham

The University of Nottingham aims to provide the finest possible environment for teaching, learning and research and they have an impressive track record of success. The award winning Jubilee Campus, opened  by Her Majesty The Queen, is a £50 million development housing the Schools of Education, Continuing Education, Computer Science and Information Technology, and the Business School.

Students benefit from state-of-the-art technology and modern facilities, including on-site accommodation, restaurants, library and computing centre within a stunning lakeside setting.

We provided ecological consultancy services for the project as part of the reclamation of the former industrial site. We advised on the creation of artificial soil mediums using on site substrates and were part of the team that designed the layout such that all materials were used within the site. We designed a number of interlinking wetlands, providing valuable wildlife habitats and an attractive setting for the development. This was part of an integrated approach to surface water management through a synthesis of engineering, ecology, landscape and architecture.
