UNIVERSITY RECOGNISED FOR SUSTAINABILITY

 

The University of Lincoln’s Brayford campus is considered environmentally friendly as it is short-listed for a national award for sustainability.

 

The Academy for Sustainable Communities Awards (ASC Awards) recognises schemes and initiatives which combine an environmentally sensitive approach with high quality design and sustainable construction.

 

The Brayford campus is short-listed in the ‘well designed and well built’ category as it has transformed the Brayford Pool area in Lincoln. The university campus is recognised as one of the most attractive and modern campuses in the UK.

 

The university has been short-listed into the final five out of over 150 entrants. The campus has already won a number of regional and national awards for the quality of the architecture and regenerative impact on the city and region.

 

The University of Lincoln is the only university in the UK to own a RIBA-registered architectural practice, UL Architects, which have designed many of the university buildings.

 

Principal Architect at the university Nigel Stevenson said: “We are delighted that the Brayford campus has again been recognised at the national level, particularly in the area of sustainability.”

 

The winners of the ASC Awards will be announced at a gala ceremony in London’s Artillery Gardens in June 2007.
