RMP were commissioned to provide an acoustic consultancy service for the new 11,000sqm headquarters which comprises state of the art laboratories with associated open space, conference facilities, library, staff facilities and 2500sqm of glasshouses.
All the cut and fill material was retained on site to create mounding for acoustic attenuation and the project achieved a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating – exceptional for a building on a greenfield site.
