The Building

The 11 storey building includes two large roof terraces and 31,500 sqm of office space, with retail on the street level. The developers committed themselves to meet the highest sustainability targets.

The Requirement

A BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating was required. The architect paid particular attention to glare and solar gain reduction in order to meet the BREEAM criteria. They recognised the importance of maintaining a view to the outside from all elevations to improve staff health and well-being.

The Solution

The use of window blinds for glare control contributes one credit under BREEAM 2008 in the Health & Wellbeing category. A thermal modelling study proved that Verosol’s high performance SilverScreen metallised screen fabric with 4% openness returned the optimum shading coefficient. Use of this fabric contributed an extra BREEAM credit related to thermal comfort in the Health & Wellbeing category.
