Sustainable ventilation for Fulbridge Academy

Sustainable ventilation for Fulbridge Academy

Working alongside clients Nigel Smith Plumbing, GDL's Intelivent Natural Ventilation Penthouse Turrets were selected as the most suitable method of sustainably ventilating a new school building at Fulbridge Academy in Peterborough. The academy one of 378 schools nationwide to have successfully received funding through the ‘Targeted Basic Need Programme’. The expansion programme included modification work in the existing school building to allow for additional classrooms and improved sports facilities.

GDL's Intelivent Solarstore Turrets would have been selected to offer increased ventilation during summer months or when the occupancy level in the classrooms reaches its maximum capacity. On this project GDL provided hard wired controls whereby the teachers and staff can 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 during the day a controlled ventilation rate using Natural Ventilation will maintain a comfortable environment whilst remaining cost effective and energy efficient.

Aesthetically the Architects designed the building using a bold and vibrant colour scheme for the Penthouse Turrets.
