Heriot-Watt University Malaysia Green Campus

Heriot-Watt University Malaysia’s purpose-built campus opened in Putrajaya in September 2014. The £35m campus sits on 4.8 acres in a stunning lakeside location providing exceptional educational facilities in an excellent environment, close to the Putrajaya marina and its modern leisure and sports facilities. This is a fantastic green area, part of Putrajaya Lake’s ‘green continuum’, and the building design is a conscious reference.

Heriot-Watt University Malaysia in PutrajayaThe ‘green campus’ is remarkable for having the first living grass roof of its kind in Malaysia, and one of the biggest at 300 metres long and 30 metres wide. The most recognisably sustainable feature of the campus, the green roof shades the naturally ventilated spaces below, reduces thermal transmittance, and acts as an observation deck, accessible by glass lift. Other environmentally friendly, passive design features include campus lighting ‘powered’ by the maximum use of natural daylight, a rainwater harvesting system and optimised air-conditioning and thermal control systems.

The campus is a state-of-the-art teaching and learning environment, reflecting our status as a leading provider of high-quality, professionally orientated education, knowledge transfer and research. Architect-designed in conjunction with educational design specialists, the campus has been developed with the current generation of students in mind, to create a dynamic, exciting place which maximises the potential of its setting for study and student life.
