Brighton marina is a mixed use development located within Brighton harbour consisting primarily of residential accommodation located above a 3 storey basement car park with podium level landscaping above. The project is a combination of 11 blocks of various heights up to 39 floors which will be built to a phased programme with heat supplied by a centralised energy centre.

The M&E services designed included an energy centre utilising two CHP engines with thermal storage, comfort cooling, home automation, Photovoltaic design, wet risers and commercial and domestic sprinklers.
