Westergate Business Centre is a pleasingly designed high-performance building that was created with a high regard to the environment. The overall design achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, one of the first in Brighton to do so. The following key aspects were implemented to achieve the BREEAM status:
Use of green walls to provide more varied habitats and nectar sources for wildlife
Installation of swift boxes to provide nesting opportunities for this Local Biodiversity Action Plan species
Use of ‘north lights’ and ‘sun tubers’ to provide good levels of day lighting in order to reduce the need for artificial lighting
Monitoring of CO2 emissions during the construction phase, with total emissions offset by tree planting to achieve carbon neutrality
