Metal Technology systems used in BREEAM Excellent rated Brinell Building
Designed by TODD Architects and built by McAleer & Rushe, The £30m Brinell Building is the newest and most contemporary office building in Brighton city centre and provides 65,000 sq ft of high quality Grade A office accommodation split over seven storeys with an impressive wrap around roof terrace affording unrivalled views across Brighton and towards the seafront.
The building achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating, an A rate EPC and benefits from superior energy efficient systems which minimise occupier running costs. The open plan floor plates maximise efficiency with the clear glass full height panelling offering natural daylight and the impressive double height reception incorporates Tom Dixon pebble lighting. To achieve this thermal performance, fabricator Alucraft Projects used Metal Technology’s System 17 – 50mm capped curtain walling and System 5-20D Thermal doors.
The development includes excellent amenities for staff and visitors including secure underground car and cycle parking, electrical car charging points, private changing booths, a drying room, showers and lockers. The bike parking and changing facilities were expertly designed by specialists Five at Heart.
