Natural ventilation for school has additional control features

Published:  04 December, 2014

GDL, natural ventilation

Natural ventilation for a new school building at Fulbridge Academy in Peterborough is provided by GDL’s Intelivent penthouse turrets. Aesthetically, the architect designed the building using a bold and vibrant colour scheme for the turrets.

The Intelivent turrets for this project have hard-wired control centres so that teachers and staff can independently control the ventilation rate using conveniently located over-ride switches. In the normal course of events, Intelivent Solarstore turrets are selected to offer increased ventilation in the summer or when occupancy in classrooms reaches its maximum level.
