Brighton Campus Shines as a Finalist for Delivering Value Award

Earning its place as a finalist in the SEBCE Awards, is Phase 2 of the Brighton Metropolitan College regeneration.

Situated on Pelham street, Brighton, Phase 2 is an extensive refurbishment of the 9-storey central tower, involving over-cladding of the existing façade with a contemporary curtain wall and rainscreen system. All the external brick and original windows will be removed, with just part of the original façade being retained. Once complete, the tower will feature a striking illuminated portal inspired by the architectural details of two surrounding churches.

The project’s completion will result in not only a visual enhancement of the tower, but importantly an improvement on the safety, environmental and thermal performance of the building, optimising the operational carbon through energy efficiency measures including wall and roof insulation and new glazing. The recladding will reduce the college’s operational running costs by 41% and reduce gas consumption by 33%.

Wintech are working closely with our client Wilmott Dixon and architects ECE Architecture, providing façade engineering consultancy services from Stage 3 through to project completion with input on the overall façade strategy and producing a detailed performance specification for the required façade works.
