The floor plans on this page were produced after floors 1 and 2 in the J. B. Priestley Library were redesigned and refurbished as part of the GLEE (Green Library Environment & Education) Project.

This £1.5 million project was jointly funded by HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England) and the University of Bradford. It sought to enhance and radically improve not only the learning environment, but also our users' understanding of the green impact of building design and function and, importantly, what green impact the individual user of the space can make.

The GLEE Project was completed in November 2012.

Environmental strategy: Key principles

    The underlying principles that govern the environmental strategy of the Green Library & Education project are the following:

  • New controllable, acoustic fresh air inlets to external wall into new plenum space. The plenum is used to temper the air and provide acoustic separation before entering the main library space.
  • Air drawn across internal spaces towards new solar chimneys.
  • Buoyant air rises within solar chimney, air movement driven by stack height of chimney and solar grains.
  • Air expelled at high level through new glazed rooflight.
  • Enhanced building fabric.
key principles visual.

Building features and special characteristics

Windows

Large new windows keep the space very bright and give a great view of the amphitheatre. They are highly insulated to keep the heat in and a coating stops the glare from the sun as well.

Light wells

These great new features keep the centre of the building bright. They also form solar chimneys driving the natural ventilation.

Breathing walls

Air leaves the building through the solar chimneys in the light wells, this causes new air to be sucked in here replenishing it and keeping the environment fresh.

Vents

These automatically open and close to allow the right amount of air flow through the space keeping the conditions comfortable. replenishing it and keeping the environment fresh.

Lighting

The lights use very low energy bulbs but still create the same amount of light saving money and the environment!

Radiators

Heating and hot water is supplied by a biomass boiler that burns local wood chip creating carbon neutral energy. Thermostatic radiator valves measure the temperature in here and automatically turn the heating on and off as required.

Recycling and composting

Your food waste gets turned into compost and used on the university gardens to help the plants grow too!<

Toilets

Refurbished using recycled plastics, waterless urinals, low flow taps,efficient lighting and hand dryers all saving energy and water
