Nottingham Trent University – Brackenhurst Campus – New Library
E-BIS Ltd have been awarded the contract to supply and install the HellermannTyton Category 6 structured cabling to the New Library development on the NTU’s Brackenhurst Campus.
Work on the new eco-friendly library is underway and the 1,000m2 building, due to open in the summer, will be situated at the heart of the campus, which is home to the University’s School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences.
The single-storey building represents a new vision for learning support in the 21st century, incorporating the latest advancements in technology. Large open spaces and smaller study areas are included in the design to allow for a dynamic social and flexible environment which caters for both group and quiet study.
It will also reflect the courses delivered within the School, with artists’ impressions of trees, wildlife and flora and fauna incorporated into the décor – and there will be a ‘projection wall’ for student work to be showcased.
The library will be awarded the second highest ‘BREEAM’ rating – the world’s foremost environmental assessment method for buildings – and the highest possible Energy Performance Certificate, which measures energy efficiency. All materials for the building will be from environmentally-ethical suppliers and its carbon footprint during and after construction will be kept to a minimum.
The building will be heated by a biomass boiler, with some of the fuel sourced from the University farm, while ecology has been at the forefront of the scheme. Extensive surveys have been undertaken to minimise any impact on nesting birds, bats, and great crested newts.
The library will also hold the ‘Customer Service Excellence’ award, a government standard awarded to Nottingham Trent University’s Libraries and Learning Resources team for its high quality customer service
Selecting HellermannTyton as your cabling system gives you peace of mind, knowing that the system will be installed easily, will perform well first time and will continue to operate to the same high level throughout its life.
In the unlikely event that there are any difficulties, you have the reassurance of UK technical support and a warranty that is backed by a large financially stable British business with a long history in the data market.
