The Gillespie Centre
The RIBA award winning Gillespie Centre opened for business in January 2009. The light, airy design and flexible meeting rooms offer all the ingredients for you to host memorable events and conferences.
The Centre, built to the highest standards of sustainability, uses solar thermal panels and a ground source heat pump for efficient heating and cooling.
Energy consumption is kept to a minimum with extensive insulation and large, solar-coated, south facing windows which limit heat gain in the summer, keeping delegates cool at all times.
