To provide natural, glare-free daylight into the new, high-tech Design, Prototyping and Testing Centre at the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.
Structura designed and supplied a Kalwall translucent façade and skylights to ensure significant, glare-free, natural daylight to the internal creative spaces of the testing centre. This was achieved by using a faceted Kalwall translucent façade which bathes the interior in perfectly diffused natural daylight.
The Kalwall wall and skylights provide a comfortable, glare-free working environment. The DPTC is the fifth and final building at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre to have utilised Kalwall to ensure the campus benefitted from pre-planned low carbon technology. The building achieved BREAM: Very Good.
