CCL Slabs exposed in energy efficient design

CCL recently completed the design and installation of CCL Slabs in the new Energy Research Building at Leeds University in the UK.

The facility will become a centre of excellence nationally and internationally, for research into low carbon technologies, including everything from sustainable use of fossil fuels to carbon capture, biofuels, material recycling, and transport policy.

It will be built using heavyweight concrete, which is a key factor in the passive sustainability design and construction of the building. The concrete will remain exposed in order to maximise the potential of the material’s thermal mass properties and thus reduce the need for air conditioning. In line with this requirement, CCL provided a flat slab solution, incorporating its XF system, which reduced floor thickness whilst maintaining fair faced soffits.

The building is intended to be the ultimate in energy efficient design, incorporating solar hot water generation, an on-site combined heat and power station for conversion of waste heat, occupancy sensors and demand driven ventilation.
The Energy Research Building is due for completion in 2011.
