NEWS OASTLER BUILDING A new outlook for uni in Huddersfield


A striking new university campus with a curved glazed frontage has opened in Huddersfield. Oastler Building, designed by AHR and


delivered by Morgan Sindall, occupies a prominent town centre site and will house the University of Huddersfield’s law and humanities schools. The £28m facility has achieved BREEAM


‘Excellent’ rating for sustainability and EPC A rating for energy efficiency thanks to its solar-control glazing and the building’s shape, which enables it to ‘self-shade’. According to the architects, the design


achieves a 28 per cent carbon reduction in comparison to a standard equivalent build- ing, while the main contractor sourced all raw materials and service suppliers locally. University vice chancellor, Professor Bob


Cryan, said: “The design AHR produced is brilliant, but complex and innovative. The site itself presented problems due to the limited space and access. These factors add greatly to the achievement of our main


contractor, Morgan Sindall, in delivering this fine building with the minimal disrup- tion to the campus and the town.” Oastler Building is named after Richard Oastler, who campaigned to curb child


labour and improve conditions for factory workers during the Industrial Revolution. The facility was opened by university chancellor His Royal Highness The Duke of York on 28 April.
