Trinity Business School is a six storey development incorporating a double basement, including a 600 seat auditorium, a restaurant, rooftop conference rooms and a garden.
This building reached the Near Zero Energy Building standard. The central atrium will use natural lighting and ventilation. Solar panels and green walls also feature as part of the sustainable design.

The city centre location was a significant challenge and demanded a ‘Just in Time’ approach to all materials and equipment delivered on site. All construction was carried out with relatively little disruption to the day-to-day campus life.
Sustainability is at the heart of the new building. Design features include low energy ventilation systems, motion and time-controlled LED-based lighting and rainwater harvesting. There are 500sq m of photovoltaic panels are installed on the roof. Water for toilets are provided by recycled rainwater.
