The Green, Bradford

We provided a range of mechanical and electrical engineering works for this eco-friendly student accommodation village in Bradford, UK.

The University of Bradford contracted Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick to deliver an environmentally sound set of works to create efficient, sustainable student living. The ten-block village provides study bedrooms. communal laundry facilities, offices and student facilities. The new complex is also used to educate and inform students about sustainability.

A range of works

We delivered all ventilation systems, fire alarms and CCTV throughout the campus. A state-of–the-art energy centre was built to house all of the plant and equipment required for the building’s systems and we provided a variety of underground site services, including gas, water, electricity and district heating. We also installed data and TV cabling, as well as access control and a Building Management System.

A model village

As the first student accommodation in the country to achieve BREEAM Outstanding rating, The Green is considered a blueprint for eco-friendly living.

We met strict customer requirements, designing a mechanical and electrical package that included a rainwater harvesting system, a combined heat and power pump system and a solar thermal hot water system. All of these contributed to making the building more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
