Driven by innovation

Free Running Building’s primary aim is to provide building occupants and owners with a thermally comfortable indoor environment using minimal energy consumption. We strip out complicated, expensive and energy intensive services and use innovative techniques to maintain or improve performance.


Renewable energy has become a crucial part of the global energy picture. To meet energy demands sustainably and efficiently, we must inspire and support the next generation to play an active role in the delivery of innovative renewable energy technologies. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Bangladesh Islamia was the first of a new generation to be championed by the Global High Schools category, as young pioneers for renewable energy. Today we have returned to celebrate their success as they deliver a project which reflects the perfect balance of environmental and cultural sustainability.
