MAKING A GREEN CONTRIBUTION November 2010
Recently refurbished, highly sustainable offices, occupied by the UK Green Building Council, benefit from a range of energy efficient products, including High Performance Roller Blinds, supplied and installed by Levolux, the UK’s leading solar shading specialist.
The UK Green Building Council moved into the first floor of the Building Centre in central London, along with the Construction products Association. Their mission is to dramatically improve the sustainability of the built environment, by radically transforming the way it is planned, designed, constructed, maintained and operated. By selecting green products and technologies for their new offices, including Levolux’s High Performance Roller Blinds, the UK Green Building Council has made a small, practical step along the path to achieving this mission.
Levolux installed its chain operated 760SX High Performance Roller Blinds to provide effective control of light and glare levels for office workers. The Blinds feature an attractive, highly durable White Bronze screen fabric which maximises natural light while still allowing an outside view.
Jason Gabb, Membership Development Officer at the UK Green Building Council, is very impressed with the performance of the blinds, commenting: “The Levolux blinds have dramatically improved our working environment by allowing us to control light and glare levels, which is particularly important in the afternoons as our windows are west facing”.
The UK Green Building Council is recognised as a figurehead at the forefront of the movement towards a sustainable built environment and its new ‘highly sustainable’ home will inspire other organisations to follow suit.
