Principles


Building layouts

The Government is setting ever lower energy targets in buildings. Building Bulletins encourage the use of natural ventilation in schools to improve the learning environment.

Occupancy densities and the increased use of ICT equipment have a huge impact on heat gains and internal temperatures within the space. Most classrooms only have windows on one elevation; thus the ventilation strategy must be carefully designed to maximise the performance of the learning and communal spaces.

Strategies

Adaptive natural ventilation systems can be standalone, or can be integrated into Building Management Systems (BMS). Either systems ensure that natural ventilation strategies remain flexible and can be adjusted to the occupants’ changing needs.

Windows can be programmed to open at different levels, in separate zones, when CO2 or temperature levels reach agreed set points. Local override switches give manual operation, allowing occupants to feel in control of their own space. With these and other inputs, a healthy and focused learning environment is assured.
