The box summarises the US Labs21 case studies which are on this site. Although there are obviously differences with UK conditions, the cases have many interesting design features which have been, or could be, applied here.

In addition to case studies, Labs21 US has published an Energy Analysis (1.7MB) document. This applies various energy-efficient strategies to a generic laboratory under four different climate conditions. One of these is the Pacific Northwest, which has similar climatic conditions to the UK. The analysis can be used to evaluate which energy-efficient measures would reap the most benefits when applied to laboratories operating under various conditions.

UK Case Studies

-University of Glasgow's Biomedical and Cardiovascular Research centres

-University of Glasgow's Institute of Comparative Medicine

-University of Newcastle's Devonshire Building

We will be uploading case studies of other UK laboratories shortly.

If your laboratory has exemplary energy performance or innovative design features which help to improve environmental performance we would like to hear from you. Please contact info@heepi.org.uk
