Developed using ‘Smart’ BIM to allow for reliable coordination and an improved future understanding of maintenance and ‘building-in-use’ costs, Plus X will cement Brighton’s position as one of the best places in the world to be an entrepreneur and an inventor. A contemporary and layered aesthetic reflects the dynamic nature of Plus X, and a bright and open façade hints at the open exchange of knowledge within where a diverse workspace for a wide range of creative businesses is catered for, all with access to a shared prototyping lab.

We are looking forward to the final touches being made to Plus X Brighton over the next few weeks.

Plus X sits at the heart of our Preston Barracks scheme, a £200+ million transformation of a Georgian army barracks (Preston Barracks) and two adjacent University of Brighton Car Park sites into a rejuvenated university campus and new mixed use neighbourhood at a key entry point to the city. This “gateway” scheme also includes a mix of University of Brighton academic facilities, 1300 student beds and 360 residential dwellings.
