Mid-Sussex District Council has opened a refuse and recycling depot at Haywards Heath. Designed by Milan Babic Architects, the building makes use of the Kalwall translucent cladding system.
The building was developed to replace the existing depot, which was over 50 years old. Run by Serco, it offers financial savings for the District’s residents: it has been designed to provide a reduction in the Council’s greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and use of water.
In addition to photovoltaic cells and rainwater collection tanks, the project benefits from the Kalwall cladding system, which has been installed to diffuse natural daylight across the building.
In doing so, the system works to reduce energy consumption and heat loss further.
The Kalwall cladding system has been designed to reduce shadows, glare and the contrasts of light and shade.
By eliminating the need for blinds, curtains or solar control, the system offers a simple aesthetic. It also removes the need for artificial lighting.
Kalwall is distributed in England, Wales and Northern Ireland by Structura UK.
