The client

The National Brownfield Institute (NBI) has been created by the University of Wolverhampton as part of it’s £120m Springfield Campus development, which has turned a derelict former brewery into a world leader in construction, regeneration and the built environment.

In conjunction with its neighbour; the recently completed School of Architecture and the Built Environment; NBI will boost the UK’s ability to provide sustainable construction, further improve the circular economy and facilitate brownfield development through the creation and development of new skills, which will also help create new jobs and opportunities for its students.

As with all of their buildings and facilities, the University wanted the new NBI facilities to offer the very best electronic and physical security and life safety systems to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their staff, students and visitors, whilst also providing the simplest and most operationally efficient systems for their Estates Management Team to look after on a day to day basis.
