Case Studies

Middlesex University, The Grove Building

​Rolton Group was appointed in March 2008 by Middlesex University to act as civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical consultants on this project to take the design scheme up to a RIBA Stage D. ​Beyond this stage, our multi-disciplinary team was retained as the employer’s technical advisors for the project through to practical completion.

The building incorporates a number of low / zero carbon and renewable energy technologies including air-to-water heat pumps for heating/ cooling services, solar hot water panels, gas-fired CHP and Absorption chillers.

Rolton Group added value in a number of ways throughout the project, as highlighted in the project key facts:

  • BREEAM Bespoke rating of ‘Excellent’ achieved.
  • Incorporation of low/zero carbon and renewable energy technologies.
  • New incoming high voltage (HV) electrical supply
  • 25% reduction in CO2 compared to Part L2A 2006.

The building is used by the University’s Arts & Design School and its Media School, and includes media production (TV studios), specialist workshops as well as a mixture of office, teaching spaces, large lecture theatres and a display exhibition area / atrium.
