GDL Air Systems’ Intelivent Natural Ventilation Penthouse Turrets were selected as the most suitable method of sustainably ventilating a new school building at Fulbridge Academy.
Ordinarily, the Intelivent Solarstore Turrets would have been selected to offer increased ventilation during summer months or when the occupancy level in the classrooms reached its maximum capacity. On this project, however Intelivent Penthouse Turrets with hard-wired controls were provideded, enabling teachers and staff to independently control the ventilation rate using conveniently located override switches.
Ventilation demand changes depending on the season and occupancy levels. As occupancy levels change throughout each classroom, a controlled ventilation rate using natural ventilation can maintain a comfortable environment whiled remaining cost effective and energy efficient. Aesthetically, the architects designed the building using a bold and vibrant colour scheme for the Intelivent Penthouse Turrets.
