The Active Office

The Active Office is the latest building in SPECIFIC’s full-scale demonstration programme, which aims to test and prove the ‘Active Buildings’ concept with a range of building uses. It was built using cutting edge off-site manufacturing techniques and incorporates innovative technologies that generate, store and release solar energy.

Built in 2018, the Active Office is located next door to The Active Classroom: the UK’s first energy positive classroom, which was named Project of the Year 2018 by the RICS Wales. The two Active Buildings are able to share energy with each other, electric vehicles and the University campus, which demonstrates how SPECIFIC’s ‘Active Buildings’ approach can be applied in an energy-resilient solar-powered community.
