University of Sussex, Brighton - Projects - Mercury Glazing

University of Sussex, Brighton

Scope of Project

Replacement of over 250 windows in the refurbishment of University of Sussex student accommodation in Brighton. Located in a prominent position in a conservation area on the seafront.

Project Details

Mercury Glazing manufactured and supplied over 250 PVC-u Vertical Sliding windows as part of the refurbishment programme. With over 250 windows needing to be installed, the installation programme needed to be carefully planned to minimise disruption to students living in the flats.

The authentic heritage appearance of the Vertical Sliders met all the aesthetic and weather performance requirements of both the University of Sussex and conservation officers at Brighton & Hove City Council.

Secured by Design accreditation was an important factor, as was thermal efficiency. Solar shading glass was also specified to protect the accommodation from the full glare of the sun. As a Secured by Design-accredited fabricator, Mercury Glazing was able to deliver windows that would meet all elements of the project.

The finished result has transformed the exterior of the flats and mean they once more take pride of place on the seafront.
