Education: Marlborough Primary School Case Study
After working closely with Kier Construction and Max Fordham Consulting Engineers throughout the design, this is another project with which BB is proud to be associated. Dynamic thermal modelling of teaching and communal spaces was performed by Breathing Buildings, using our in-house 4DFlo software.
Compliance was demonstrated with the relevant overheating criteria of the Facilities Output Specification, tested using the CIBSE Design Summer Year weather file for London.
The coherent external louvre design is a great example of how Breathing Buildings NVHR units can operate with any louvre system. Our flexibility with the louvres allowed the main contractor to use hinged, insulated panels behind the louvres which was cheaper than windows and provided much better free area, allowing them to meet the new FOS and TM52.
