Breathing Buildings launches new education brochure

Student wellbeing is key when it comes to selecting a ventilation system for schools. To help ensure the provision of healthy air in schools, Breathing Buildings has launched a new sector-specific brochure titled ‘Ventilation for Schools’.

The ventilation design, specification, installation and commissioning process of an educational facility can be complex and daunting. ‘Ventilation for Schools’ aims to aid this process by outlining key considerations for ventilation in schools including individual spaces such as school halls, IT classrooms, classrooms with sloping roofs and landlocked rooms, while also providing details on suitable products for each area.

The provision of ventilation in a school requires the designer to understand and navigate the interplay of three key factors: air quality, thermal comfort and energy use. The brochure demonstrates the company’s range of energy-efficient natural and hybrid ventilation systems. Set out over eight full colour pages, the brochure showcases a range of Breathing Building products including R-Series, NVHR, S-Series, F-Series and A-Series. The brochure provides specifiers and building services consultants with advice on ensuring compliance with school Building Regulations including BB101 and BB93. It also showcases examples of other prestigious installations that have included the featured Breathing Buildings ventilation system.

“Education is a key sector for Breathing Buildings,” says Matthew Bray, commercial director at Breathing Buildings. “Many in the education sector are looking at ways to save energy and have identified low-energy ventilation systems as a way of doing this. Our new dedicated brochure points the way; it provides information on our full range of natural and hybrid ventilation products as well as guidance and inspiration for designers looking to specify ventilation for educational facilities.”
