The Active Building Centre follows government guidelines on working from home. The Active Building Centre team continues to conduct activities remotely, with a halt on all face to face meetings, events, tours or visits until further notice.


Our key focus is the health, safety and wellbeing of our team and stakeholders. We will aim to continue to deliver our objectives throughout the coronovirus pandemic.

A statement from the Active Building Centre funder UKRI:

The ongoing situation regarding coronavirus has significantly impacted the research and innovation community. The nature of these impacts will evolve and increase over the coming weeks and months.

UKRI Chief Executive Professor Sir Mark Walport said:

“During the coronavirus pandemic, UKRI has two priorities: the safety and wellbeing of our workforce and, as far as possible, the continuation of our business as a national funder of research and innovation.

“We will work with our communities, institutions and other funding organisations to understand and respond to the impacts of coronavirus, helping to develop the necessary support to mitigate these.

“This work has already begun and will continue in the coming weeks and months, and we will provide regular, updated information. Thank you in advance for working with us to support the research and innovation systems we are proud of and that have a key role to play in responding to the global pandemic.”
