Construction is underway at Askham Bryan College, the agricultural and land management college based in York. The first phase of this £34m project is the Animal Management Centre and adjoining Wildlife and Conservation Area. The centre will also include lecture theatres and a replica veterinary practice.
The college has been designed sustainably and incorporates various energy efficient systems including Grille’s solar powered Intelivent Solarstore Units. The units were a bespoke circular design, manufactured to meet the aesthetic design requirements of the Architects.
GDL’s Intelivent Solarstore Units harvest solar energy provided from the photovoltaic cells located on top of the Penthouse Turrets. The power generated from the cells allow 24 hour supply or extract ventilation, this is a particularly effective method of increasing the ventilation rate during the summer months or when the room occupancy has reached capacity.
