The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) has announced in April 2021 the start of works on its new visionary headquarters. This world first for a retrofitted sustainable office building will set new standards for low energy use, carbon emissions and impact on natural resources as well as user experience and wellbeing measured against multiple benchmarks.

As part of a collaborative team approach, we are providing building services engineering, sustainability and interior design services for the new headquarters, named The Entopia Building. The retrofitted 1930s telephone exchange at 1 Regent Street, Cambridge will be transformed into an ultra-low carbon sustainability hub, and new home for CISL as it scales up business, government and academic leadership, collaboration and innovation to accelerate the inclusive global transition.

The Entopia Building aims to be an international exemplar for sustainable office retrofits, demonstrating how an existing office building can be made highly energy efficient in its redevelopment and use, whilst supporting the enhanced wellbeing of staff and visitors.
