Education: Natural Ventilation behind the scenes

Natural Ventilation behind the scenes

YMCA East Anton is a purpose-built nursery for 0-5 year olds which opened in October 2017. At early design stage it was suggested that the classrooms should have mechanical ventilation systems. However, YMCA had concerns about the energy use as well as maintenance costs associated with a mechanical ventilation scheme. Breathing Buildings were approached by Darcy Construction to design a natural ventilation system that would be unobtrusive and provide high levels of ventilation to keep the rooms fresh.
