Explore the Hub

Sustainability Hub: Forum

Located on the ground floor, the forum is designed to encourage participation and engagement through conversation and collaboration, rather than traditional lecture theatre layouts. It is an open plan, flexible space ideal for larger group work, informal meetings, staff training, community workshops or smaller events. Natural light floods this space through bi-folding doors, which can be opened for extra ventilation during warmer months. The forum features 86 and 55 inch TV screens, a lectern, and integrated speakers. A kitchen and an internal green wall are also situated in this area. 

Capacity: 40 seated, 60 standing

Sustainability Hub: Communications Room

A specially designed boardroom style meeting room equipped with a range of video and web conferencing facilities that will allow our researchers to collaborate more effectively, locally, nationally and internationally, with external partners. Its uses include teleconferencing, media interviews, webinar filming and broadcasting, as well as face-to-face meetings. 

Capacity: 12 seated
