Air-Filled Pillow roof system for Brent Civic Centre

Air-Filled Pillow roof system for Brent Civic Centre

Novum was contracted to design, manufacture and install an Air-Filled Pillow roof system over Brent Civic Centre. This challenging project includes 56 single large span cladding elements of ETFE draining into a 0.5m perimeter structural gutter established on a repeating square grid, covering both internal and external environments below.

The pillows are almost 1.6m in depth and present as a ‘bubble’ surface across the roof space. The majority of the ETFE roof is visible from the reception/entrance of the building; the first thing visitors see as they enter the building. The project has been awarded the coveted BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating; the highest possible and first project in its category to have achieved this in the UK.
