Report: Sharrow Nursery and Community Centre — an Integration of Renewables, Efficiency and High-performance Materials

Daniel Black, Sheffield Hallam University

The aim of this report was to investigate the uses of a combination of high-performance materials and sustainable methods of construction. The Sharrow Nursery and Community Centre project incorporates technical designs that present a challenge in conveying the nature of the building to be constructed. The report includes a key section through the building, to analyse and illustrate the building’s technological aspects, prior to detailed consideration and comparison of the different options.
