BREEAM in Brighton

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

There’s some high achieving going on in Sussex, and we’re not talking by the students. Feilden Clegg Bradley’s £22m Brighton Aldridge Community Academy for 11-18 year olds, which completed last year, has won a BREEAM Excellent rating, plus a 2012 RIBA South East sustainability award. Designed for the topography in which it sits, the front elevation is clad in a blend of anthracite and dark facing bricks. Light Kawneer AA100 curtain walling on the upper levels to contrasts with the brick plinth below.
