NBT Meets ‘Excellent’ Criteria For One Brighton

High performance building materials from Natural Building Technologies (NBT) have been specified for one of the UK’s most sustainable developments, One Brighton. NBT’s building systems provided exceptional thermal performance levels and helped the development achieve a true zero carbon status and an EcoHomes ‘Excellent’ rating.

The flagship project of developer, BioRegional Quintain and housebuilder, Crest Nicholson, One Brighton is part of the regeneration of the New England Quarter of Brighton. The development was the first One Planet Living® community to be designed, constructed and managed using the One Planet Living Principles, a global initiative by BioRegional and WWF International which provides a set of guiding principles to promote highly sustainable lifestyles.

A mixed-use development, One Brighton comprises 172 apartments and Eco-studios, as well as offices, retail space and approximately 1000m2 of community space. The two contemporary blocks of up to 11 storeys, were constructed using NBT’s ThermoPlan fired clay blocks, Diffutherm woodfibre insulation and mineral-based render systems. Quick and easy to install, NBT’s building materials offer high levels of thermal efficiency and are fully breathable, creating a healthy internal living environment.

Pete Halsall, Managing Director at BioRegional Quintain Ltd., comments: “We are delighted to have installed a number of materials which have been supplied by NBT at One Brighton. We believe that the residents will benefit years into the future from the health and well-being generated through the specification of natural building materials that NBT have supplied. We have been delighted by their excellent technical support in using these high performance, sustainable products.”

NBT’s comprehensive consultancy service, nbt consult, managed the on-site workmanship, ensuring a high quality finish and guaranteeing that the predicted efficiency values were achieved. Additionally, nbt consult conducted air-tightness testing and provided technical design advice on ventilation systems.

Neil May, Managing Director of NBT and nbt consult, concludes: “One Brighton demonstrates the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of working with high quality environmental solutions when they are designed in from the outset of projects. The development also highlights the suitability of NBT’s range of building solutions and strength of technical support services.”
