Making an impact by delivering the UK’s first urban centre of excellence in low carbon technologies

We’ve constructed CEREB at roof level at the heart of the Southwark campus. The centre was specially designed as a walk through demonstration facility, and provides direct access to the building’s installed mechanical engineering and renewable low carbon energy technologies. Sustainability is embedded in the ethos of CEREB; where possible we sourced and used sustainable products in the building process.

The centre was officially opened by Mayor of London Boris Johnson, who declared: “This exciting new technology centre is unique in that it provides both research and teaching facilities, but also enables people to see, hands on, how technologies can be used.”
