The Ballarat Grammar Centennial Building is a centre of learning excellence for Year 12 students. Environmentally sustainable design and operating principles informed the design brief, with a particular focus on maximising natural light and ventilation.
Louvres were used throughout the project, motorised to open and close automatically depending on the ambient air temperature. This ensures maximum use of cross-ventilation, and reduced reliance on air conditioning/heating. The louvres are controlled by a building management system, which also incorporates an energy monitoring system, providing a learning experience on energy efficiency for students.
With security a major concern, Safetyline Jalousie louvres were chosen as the best option for the project. With an impenetrable security system, Safetyline Jalousie louvres can remain open all the time, allowing maximum use of natural ventilation 24 hours a day. Weatherproof seals and a robust design also made the Safetyline Jalousie product
the ideal choice.
