BREEAM Excellent

The concept for the Baglan Technium project was driven by the need to create an environment that would nurture high technology business development and encourage new ideas and aspirations within a flexible building framework.

 

The team’s final vision was based around fragmented geometrical forms located along a sweeping curved axis, set against a fan-shaped grid to create a powerful point of entry into the building. The axis of the building has been orientated to complement the adjacent solar centre development and capture panoramic views from the M4 motorway.

 

Examples of sustainability measures which achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating include:

 

  • use of natural daylight
  • ventilation
  • ecological value of the site
  • on site water retention
  • clever selection of materials
