The Architecture: Building a local landmark for Devonport
The EfW CHP facility at Devonport has been designed as a local landmark, following consultation with Plymouth City Council and the public. It respects the character, identity and context of Plymouth's historic townscape and landscape and in particular Plymouth’s unique waterfront.
The design strives to be both modern and functional and showcases a world class EfW CHP facility to manage waste and produce electricity and heat representing a continuation of cutting-edge development in a dockyard that has been at the forefront of technological innovation for over two hundred years.
Lighting scheme for the outside of the building from dusk to 11pm
The appearance of the functional building has been made more elegant by the addition of "ribs" to the taller elements of the development and the air cooled condensers: a lighting scheme has been developed for the evening to make the building a major architectural element in the Cityscape without intruding on local residents.
