Ben Ainslie Racing ClickFix1040

Architect:  HGP Architects

Specialist Contractor:  T.A. Colbourne

Product: Clickfix

Completed: 2015


Over 200m2 of Brett Martin Daylight Systems’ Marlon Clickfix1040 glazing panels have been installed at a new multi-million pound HQ in Portsmouth which will act as a focal point for the design, construction and development of yachts, as well as setting benchmarks for sustainability and construction innovation


Designed by HGP Architects and built by Allied Developments, the stunning 6,874m2 headquarters required two clear glazed façades on the south and east elevations to bring natural light into the building.  For a glazing system which would not only maximise daylight but also offer exceptional air tightness, durability and UV stability, Marlon Clickfix1040 from Brett Martin proved the most thermally efficient solution and ensured a fast and straightforward installation for specialist contractor T. A. Colbourne.

Specified with glass bead technology to provide diffusion in conjunction with high levels of light transmission, the polycarbonate panels provide a naturally diffused daylight. It also reduces solar glare, ensuring a comfortable interior environment in this landmark building.  To further reduce the risk of solar glare, whilst helping the building almost double its thermal performance, a giant fabric wrap envelopes much of the exterior façade. Its translucency still allows natural light into the interior of the building, whilst providing a sail like canvas on to which Land Rover BAR can project graphics.

With the new multi-million pound HQ now complete, Brett Martin Daylight Systems will demonstrate once again that introducing natural light into spaces is central to achieving the required performance of highly sustainable buildings.
