HTS launches collaborative net-zero life sciences research at UKREiiF


Innovation in Science Buildings: The Path to Net Zero, a new report exploring the design of high-quality, net-zero life sciences space to support an industry key to the growth of the UK economy, launches today.

Together with Bennetts Associates, Turner & Townsend Alinea and Hoare Lea, we have launched a pioneering net-zero life sciences research and design report that shares best practice design solutions to significantly reduce the carbon intensive environmental impact of life sciences buildings now, and in the future.

The report was launched at UKREiiF 2024, with the report findings discussed during an industry panel featuring Director at Heyne Tillett Steel, Susan Mantle , along with Simon Erridge - Director at Bennetts Associates, Hamish Summers - Director at T&T Alinea, and Kostas Milonidis - Associate Director at Hoare Lea. The panel was chaired by Emily Slupek - Partner (Project Management) at Bidwells.

Using cross-industry knowledge, the new research presents a comprehensive net-zero prototype of a typical speculative lab building. This prototype demonstrates how every aspect of design can be optimised, focusing initially on embodied carbon emissions and subsequently on operational energy performance. The report provides critical guidance on the implications of design choices throughout the building’s lifecycle.
