The Cochrane Building

BREEAM Excellent

The Partnership was commissioned by the University to design a new library and teaching facility to form the new face of the Cardiff University School of Medicine, on the Heath Hospital campus and provides a physical and symbolic link between the University and the Health Board.

We worked with Powell Dobson Architects and Bingham Hall Partnership structural engineers to design the building. The building uses exposed thermal mass along with natural ventilation, a combined heat and power (CHP) unit and high efficiency boilers as part of the low energy environmental system.
