Natural daylight in relation to energy saving, aesthetic and health benefits, is often discussed by architects and designers. Natural daylight is associated with energy efficiency, but natural light also boosts well-being and performance levels, and can lead to the improved productivity within public building environments.
Natural daylight In the education sector has been proven to improve student performance and concentration levels, whilst natural light aids the healing process in the healthcare sector. Designers introducing daylight into public buildings, such as leisure facilities, have also recognised the popularity of sunrooms, orangeries and garden buildings in the home, and have replicated this accordingly.
Rooflights and skylights on public buildings can lead to additional design and specification challenges. That’s why our dedicated team, with a single point of contact, will be able to support both main contractors and architects alike. We’ve designed and manufactured bespoke skylights on the roofs of countless schools, museums, universities, libraries, art galleries and other public buildings such as gym’s and even churches.
We’re used to the more demanding stipulations of public building roof design. Often specialist glass has to be provided to protect valuable content housed within the building. And where public safety is concerned, such as crowd loading for walk-on glass roofs, or overhead laminated glazing in schools and hospitals, we ensure that everything we supply is fit for purpose and perfect for its new environment.
