Velfac natural ventilation helps Innovation Park achieve breeam excellence

  • Comment

A natural ventilation system, using VELFAC glazing, installed at The Innovation and Business Base (IBB) in Luton, was an important energy saving feature contributing towards the project’s BREEAM Excellent rating.  Designed by Hopkins Architects and built by Marriott Construction, the IBB houses office space and business support facilities. 

The Innovation Centre features extensive VELFAC glazing, installed in long ribbons running the entire length of the two storey, cedar clad building, and as the main entrance screen.  As well as providing maximum daylight for interior spaces, the glazing is also integral to the building’s natural ventilation system, which uses automatically opening VELFAC windows to moderate internal temperature fluctuations, and to allow night time cooling.
