Access control on the menu for future Science Centre in Cambridge
Implementing a modern, fully integrated access control system is really a must for any modern research facility, such as the future £25 million science centre that is set to be built at Anglia Ruskin University’s Cambridge Campus.
The new 7,900 sq m facility to be built by Morgan Sindall will combine teaching, postgraduate and staff amenities for various departments within the Faculty of Science and Technology.
Features include a 300-seat lecture theatre, a 200-seat super-laboratory, staff offices and a range of specialist teaching space.
The red brick building will replace the Bryant and Mellish Clark buildings, with the roof designed to be reminiscent of traditional sheet metal roof cladding and will aim to achieve a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating, with 200 sq m of the roof space dedicated to photovoltaic panels.
The centre will save the university over 30% of carbon emissions by using gas more efficiently and generating its own electricity.
