Gilberts kits out “world class” research facility

How do you balance the ventilation requirements of a four-storey, 7500+m2 “winged” research facility, where internal spaces range from a three-storey high atrium to wet and dry teaching spaces accommodating 60 to 280 students?

You utilise the flexibility of louvre screens from Gilberts Blackpool. Integrating seamlessly with the façade, the louvres ensure a continuous fresh airflow for the building and its plant, with the flexibility to address future needs internally.

Now, the University of Reading’s new £55m health & life sciences building incorporates Gilberts WGK75 standard kitform and WHC75 high performance louvres, creating screens up to 49.8m x 2.4m. As appropriate, acoustic attenuation and ventilation dampers and access doors have been added to provide the appropriate balancing of external factors that could influence the internal environment.
