Sustainability and environmental concerns at Cranfield University

Hmm, as a student representative on the Cranfield Health Environment Committee, I think it a bit unfortunate to find out that the Vincent Building was (in hushed rumors) apparently rushed through planning and construction, to make sure that it didn't have to meet the rapidly approaching deadline, after which, the design of the building would have had to have much more stringent energy and efficiency standards (from what I can gather).

Bit naughty. Worthy of some further investigation as to who ok'd the building process, in the full knowledge of this...

Sheppard Robson, driven by the global sustainable agenda has responded by integrating sustainable and environmental issues into our design and business processes; providing us with a consistent set of principles easily recognisable to our clients, building users and staff.
Responsibility therefore sits at the heart of everything we do. We aim to achieve best practice in employee relations, workplace standards, training and development, diversity and disability as well as environmental policies for both staff and students alike.
