This year’s “Sustainable Design Project of the Year” is the Rural Regeneration Centre at Hadlow College. One of the top three agricultural colleges in the UK, it was created by James Anwyl from EUROBUILD using GRAPHISOFT’s market leading BIM and energy assessment tools, ArchiCAD® and EcoDesigner™. The Green IT awards seek to reward organizations that have demonstrated originality and innovation in ‘green’ solutions, products and policies.
The Rural Regeneration Centre at Hadlow College is an excellent example of how ArchiCAD® and EcoDesigner™ make energy efficient design possible. Since its creation, the Centre has been Passivhaus certified – becoming the first educational establishment in the UK to do so. It has also won the Environmental Project of the Year at the Construction Computing Awards.
James Anwyl, Director of EUROBUILD used ArchiCAD® together with its integrated thermal performance module – EcoDesigner – to evaluate the energy consumption of the design and MEP Modeler to co-ordinate the services within the building. Congratulations to EUROBUILD and their entire team on the award!
