Queen’s University Belfast

Runtal Rad & LSA Cassette Effect Over Door Air Curtain

The objective was to create a high-quality transparent building that establishes a discrete identity for Computer Science, integrating both teaching and research; and to deliver a stimulating environment for staff and students. The new four-storey 3,000m2, building, with a glazed front elevation, is built around and extends the concrete frame of the existing structure. In keeping with the University’s commitment to sustainability, the building has been designed to minimize its impact on the environment and to achieve the target of Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) “Excellent” rating.
