Bretton Architectural


Edge Hill University Technology Hub

Project Description

Established in 1985 Edge Hill University, based in Ormskirk, Liverpool, has over 10,000 full-time students. As part of their aim to continually develop their state of the art campus and fulfill their vision of a visually inspiring, sustainable environment, the university invested £13.5 million into the development of a new technology hub which would be home to the university’s department of computing. Through main contractor, John Turner and Sons, the original Leven’s building was retained and refurbished with a glazed link connecting it to the new Technology Hub which was developed as a key resource for over 600 computing students. Alongside subcontractor, Bretton, Architectural, ADC joined the team to provide access expertise for the groundbreaking project installing a set of bi-part sliding aluminium automatic entrance doors to the front of the lobby. Bretton Architectural chose ADC because of our industry experience and excellent reputation working on educational establishments

Ground Breaking Technology

The new and refurbished high-quality technology space houses new biotechnical labs, lecture theatres, offices & 3D visual environments. Edge Hill University is committed to sustainability and the new hub was designed as a low carbon building in a conservation area. The new automatic doors into the lobby of the building were designed and constructed to meet rigorous energy efficiency standards.

High-Tech Architectural Aluminium

For the installation, we specified high performance structural glazing from Technal. Technal aluminium products from SAPA Building Systems are internationally recognised for their superior quality. They were our first choice for this project because of their versatility, durability, and sleek aesthetic. Their inherent strength enabled us to confidently glaze the large frontage.
