Brighton University Estates have agreed our build site and site for where the Brightnest Project will live.
The building will be adjacent the the Heavy Engineering block on the Moulsecoombe Campus, this site also give us a visual reference for our ‘Virtual site’ on the top of the Mithras House building across the road.
The first design workshop was held at Brighton University Led by John Smith MCIAT (VL, Brighton Allumni and modular construction specialist).
John Led the group through the process of design and the overarching requirements for the Solar Decathlon 19.
The students had a wide range of backgrounds so the primary aim was to define what was needed and what did the students want to achieve.
The white board session captured an evolving design.
