In 2018 Kier was appointed by The Unveristy of Brighton to deliver a multi-million-pund multi storey car park.

The car park will provide 550 spaces over seven floors, of which 17 are disabled spaces and 55 are active EV charging spaces with passive provision for 100% provission in the future. The ground floor of the car park incorporates secure storage for 330 cycles, including lockers, changing, showering and drying facilities, a bin store, staff facilities and plant space.

The proposed facade combines complete coverage of perforated metal panels to the upper floors with an additional green high-tensile cable system to allow climing plants to "green" the building. The cladding create a parapet of minimum height 1200mm above the top deck FFL. The ground floor features some glazed areas and metal mesh cladding to the cycle storage areas.

It will employ a natural ventolation system, with the exception of the inhabited areas, eg offices.

The scheme will be designed up to RIBA Stage 3 based on the use of a steel frame and composite deck.

This is an opportunity to see behind the hoardings of the University of Brighton's Multi Storey Car Park we are delivering in Moulsecomb.
