Brighton and Hove Albion FC Elite Football Performance Centre

Client: BHAFC

Architect: KSS Design Group

BREEAM: Very Good

Brighton and Hove Albion FC completed their new £73m football stadium at Falmer, on the outskirts of Brighton and the second phase of work included a new £22m Elite Performance Centre in Lancing.

Method provided BREEAM advice and assessment services on behalf of the design and build contractor, Buckingham Group and has worked closely with Buckingham’s team to achieve a rating of Very Good. Renewable energy includes air source heat pumps and a photovoltaic array. Potable water for pitch irrigation is only used as a last resort on this site, with an extensive water re-use system forming part of the drainage strategy. We were later asked to undertake a Post Occupancy Evaluation exercise on behalf of the client, using the BUS Methodology.
