About this building

Bernard Katz Building

The Bernard Katz building is an early 90s building, purpose built for the Advanced Centre for Biochemical UCL Engineering and the Eisai Research Laboratory for Molecular Biology. The Eisai laboratories have subsequently moved out and the space was refurbished in 2013/14 to become a complete home for Biochemical UCL Engineering. A large number of fume cupboards and bio-safety cabinets are required to perform the science safely. However, these units suck out lots of heated or cooled air as well as the dangerous chemicals and germs. This means that larger amounts of energy are required to heat and cool the laboratories.

Display Energy Certificate

Since 9 January 2013 public buildings in the UK over 500m2 have been required to display a Display Energy Certificate (DEC) prominently at all times. Display Energy Certificates were introduced by the Government in response to the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive which all EU member states were required to implement by January 2009.

DECs are designed to promote the improvement of the energy performance of buildings. They are based upon the actual energy performance of a building and increase transparency about the energy efficiency of public buildings. DECs use a scale from A to G with A being the most efficient and G the least. The Display Energy Certificate for Bernard Katz Building is available here or by clicking the plaque on the right.
