Advanced Engineering Building
Sustainably manufactured windows, doors and curtain walling from CMS WINDOW SYSTEMS have been installed in the newly constructed £14m Advanced Engineering Building (AEB) at the University of Brighton, which provides facilities for engineers pioneering new low carbon combustion engine technology.
The thermally broken aluminium windows and doors manufactured and installed by CMS for main contractor Graham using Metal Technology systems are part of a building design planned to minimise energy use.
The project involved the fabrication and installation of more than 380 sq. m of curtain walling. Windows with a typical U-value of 1.3 W/m2K, plus doors created using Metal Technology’s System 5-20D Hi+ completed CMS’s involvement in the project.
The AEB was developed with funding by the Higher Education Funding Council for England and the University of Brighton, with a further generous contribution of £7m from the Government.
