VMZINC® double lock standing seam and flatlock panels in ANTHRA-ZINC® were used in the construction of the Macro Micro Studio at the University of Dundee. The zero-energy prototype was built in the Botanic Gardens by eight Architecture Masters students seeking to achieve ‘an off-grid, energy autonomous, Passivhaus’.

The sustainable design is the UK’s first net-zero energy live/work studio and showcases existing and emerging materials, services and renewables. VMZINC was among a consortia of over 50 manufacturers brought together to provide specialist expertise and materials prior to it being equipped with instruments to capture data on environmental performance and energy generation.
