Velocity, Brooklands

Velocity, Brooklands, Weybridge, Surrey

The Velocity project comprised of the construction of two five-storey office buildings that provide around 105,000 sq ft of office space. The project is within the Brooklands estate in Weybridge, which was previously the home of the famous Brooklands race track. The estate is owned by German car manufacturer Dalmer Chrysler and incorporates Mercedes-Benz World, another previous project with over 11000m² of waterproofing installed by the Roofline group.

Sustainable features include rainwater harvesting tanks and photovoltaic panels across the roof. The building is also thermally efficient with lighting systems including daylight sensors, passive lighting controls (PIR) and LED lighting in key areas. Electric car charging points are also provided in the car park along with bike storage to promote green travel options. The project exceeded BREEAM expectations and secured a rating of ‘Excellent’.
