The form of eleven Brindley Place consists of two towers: One rectangular on plan, and the other quadrant shaped, intended to follow the adjacent site boundary. The two are linked by a core block which is one structural bay wide. The accommodation is spread over twelve floors, but the rectangular tower is the taller of the two by virtue of housing the rooftop plant. The core is pushed to the south east facade, which reduces the effects of solar gain. Isolation is also minimised by the facade which features vertical projecting fins, 50mm wide by 300mm deep at 750mm centres. These help to shade the elevations and span over two floors before meeting a horizontal transom. This treatment has the effect of distorting the vertical scale of the composition - making the structure seem slimmer. The fins also add texture and depth to the facade. Despite the considerable amount of glazing the scheme has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.
