Cockcroft Building Wins AJ Retrofit Awards

We are pleased to announce that our Cockcroft Building for the University of Brighton, one of the largest retrofits of an occupied academic building in the UK, is the winner in the Higher and Further Education Award category of AJ Retrofit Awards 2016. An innovative approach integrating architectural, building services and structural design has unlocked the environmental potential of the 10,500m2 building and enhanced this with the latest technology, including an aquifer thermal energy store, potentially reducing energy demand, CO2 emissions and fuel savings. We transformed the building from a dark, cellular and unloved space into a bright, flexible learning and research environment, fit for the information age, with ‘learning labs’ and agile workspace for staff and students.
