UCL PEARL received the Net-Zero Award at the Building Awards ceremony on 1st November 2022.
PEARL, the Person Environment Activity Research Laboratory, is University College London’s first net-zero carbon building that is setting the bar for future development. The building is projected to be carbon negative thanks to its highly efficient fabric, services and the production of its own energy from a vast array of photovoltaics covering the entire roof. Built for deconstruction and the circular economy, the design maximises the use of recycled and recyclable materials, whilst minimising waste from site through off-site prefabrication and cut and fill site preparation.
Congratulations to the whole team for this well-deserved recognition for all their hard work on this project.
