Breeam rated excellent Defra building installs Velfac windows
VELFAC windows have been installed at the DEFRA-owned Dragonfly House in Norwich, rated as Excellent by BREEAM for its demonstration of the highest environmental construction standards.
Designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson, the office building – new home to the Broads Authority, Environment Agency, and Natural England – uses large areas of VELFAC glazing both to enhance the contemporary external design, and to maximise natural light in the interior. VELFAC windows are also used to create a dramatic main entrance, formed from a window wall and glazed screen rising the full height of the four storey building.
VELFAC windows feature in many BREEAM-rated Excellent developments, specified for the glazing’s use of sustainable raw materials and manufacturing practices, detailed in full life cycle analyses, and backed by the company’s commitment to reduce environmental impact.
