Transforming education spaces: Recladding the tower at Brighton MET

ECE Architecture and Willmott Dixon are currently progressing the second phase of the Central Brighton Campus regeneration, with completion due in August this year.

Located on Pelham Street in Brighton, East Sussex, Phase 2 includes recladding the central tower, improving the thermal performance, and optimising the operational carbon through energy efficiency measures including wall and roof insulation and new glazing.

The work started with the south elevation, which is now being prepared for the final installation of the cladding panels after having all compartmentation fire barriers, insulation, secondary structure membranes and new windows installed. The north elevation is waiting for the installation of the final cladding and windows, with both the east and west elevations being prepared for the external wall insulation and secondary structure before the final cladding panels are installed.

When completed, the recladding will significantly improve the visual appearance of the tower, but more importantly, it will reduce the college’s operational running costs by 41%, reduce gas consumption by 33% and improve the safety of the building.
