Primary school features stimulating learning spaces thanks to increased levels of daylight provided by VELUX Modular Skylights

A primary school in south-west London features stimulating learning spaces thanks to high levels of daylight provided by 45 VELUX Modular Skylights. The redevelopment of Glenbrook Primary School, in Clapham Gardens, was carried out under the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP).

Both VELUX Ridgelight and VELUX Longlight solutions were specified for different areas of the school, to help meet the climate-based daylight modelling targets set by the Generic Design Brief that is part of the PSBP process. The PSBP is a government scheme that rebuilds or refurbishes schools in poor condition.

Meeting budget and timescale, whilst also achieving the building performance targets, is critical to the success of a project like Glenbrook Primary School. The prefabricated nature of VELUX Modular Skylights meant design work for Glenbrook could proceed in the knowledge that the standardised modules could easily be incorporated into the proposals.

Construction schedule helped by easy-to-install products

Meeting a tight building programme at the same time as achieving a high standard of construction quality is a difficult balancing act. VELUX Modular Skylights are designed to work as a single system from the moment they are produced. That gives contractors confidence that on site the modules fit together perfectly to create a seamless and watertight glass roof.
