The Keep is a new-build historical research centre in Falmer, Brighton. The building has been designed to be used by the general public or educational groups within the community. The project started in 2011 andopened in J une 2013.
The architects wanted to design a modern building which combined latest technologies. As well as high security elements such as solar panels and solar heating, thick walls and a biomass boiler were used so the so that the final building would be certified as a BREEAM Excellent Building.
Due to the nature of the content held within the building, the architect wanted to specify rooflights which would provide maximum security to the building.
The Rooflight Company were the only manufacturer that Atkins Architects could find which offers Secured by Design.
Kier worked with the rooflight company for over two years on this project as they were able to meet the specific brief of high security rooflights required. They offered a rooflight solution which matched the security levels needed for the building which no other manufacturer can supply.
