Natural ventilation for John Leggott College

Natural ventilation for John Leggott College

Project name: John Leggott College
Market sector: Education
Geographic sector: Scunthorpe

Project details:
John Leggott College in Scunthorpe has recently undergone a £5 million refurbishment ready for completion for the new school term. The money, funded by a dedicated building grant from the Department for Education, has been spent on refurbishment over a three year period at the Scunthorpe college. The grant that funded these improvements is shared across 96 colleges nationwide. The college now benefits from an improved library and canteen as well as enhanced sporting facilities. GDL worked alongside clients K Binks Heating Ltd to design and supply a natural ventilation solution throughout the building that includes the Intelivent Light Vent turret and Wall Units throughout.

Project overview
GDL supplied and installed a natural ventilation and daylight solution throughout the college buildings offering an energy efficient and sustainable alternative to a wired mechanical arrangement. The Light Vent was specified as the most suitable product type offering combined natural ventilation and lighting. The Solarpipe solution within the Intelivent Range is another option available if combined lighting and ventilation is required. The Light Vent allows natural daylight to enter the building from roof level via a polycarbonate cover that is similar in appearance to a sky light and is suitable in almost any application. This product type again eliminates the need for costly artificial lighting throughout buildings, corridors and stairwells.

Benefits of using GDL Products on the project:
• Bespoke ventilation system created by our in house design team.
• Natural daylight solution installed to provide a sustainable and energy efficient alternative to artificial wired lighting.
• Simple and effective Light Vent design.
