Inspiring Pavilion at Clifton campus wins national award
31 March 2017
The carbon-neutral Pavilion building at Nottingham Trent University’s Clifton campus has won a Guardian University Award.
It won the category for Buildings that Inspire - awarded to an ‘outstanding initiative’ that creates and champions a more sustainable living and working environment in the university and beyond, with a demonstrable and lasting legacy.
The campus building, which opened in 2015, has already achieved a list of accolades including the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) East Midlands Awards (Client of the Year Award), Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) East Midlands (Regeneration Award), the East Midlands Celebrating Construction Awards (Integration and Collaborative Working Award), and the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Award.
Ged O’Donoghue, Director of Estates and Resources, said: “Winning the Guardian award is particularly pleasing for us because we set out to deliver buildings that inspire students to want to learn in them. To win a Buildings that Inspire award, along with the positive student feedback we have received, makes this a hugely successful project in my eyes.”
The Guardian University Awards were presented by Lauren Laverne at a ceremony on Wednesday, March 29.
