As part of the transformational project at Tullibody South Campus in Clackmannanshire, Scotland, VELUX Modular Skylights were installed to bring natural light and fresh air into the learning spaces for 700 children under the age of 11.
With statistics showing that children spend up to 90% of their day indoors, with much of that time spent in the classroom, the design of educational institutions has been changing dramatically over recent years to address the need to create lighter, brighter, and more stimulating environments.
Initial discussions between the architect and the contractor had revolved around designing bespoke rooflights, however, it was felt that VELUX Commercial would fulfil the project’s requirements with its prefabricated, modular skylight solutions.
This Project Study details how the VELUX Modular Skylight system was installed to:
- Create a natural ambience conducive to the well-being of the children
- To highlight the architectural elements of the building and provide a welcoming feel to the space
- Meet the requirements of Building Bulletin 101 (BB101) – Ventilation of School Buildings
