Reduces UV reflection
Reduces heat and glare
Provides alternative space
With the BER (Building the Education Revolution) project completed there was an unusable space that was quite hot and produced a lot of glare into the building. The space needed to be used as an alternative for outdoor study and provide a place to eat.
We proposed the Star structure as a cost effective, modern style solution which would cut direct and reflected glare into the adjacent classroom space, with the added benefit of the least interruption to the space with only one single column in the area. A free-standing structure, the Star structure is fully engineered and therefore avoids any risk of damage to the adjacent building.
The completed space looks absolutely fantastic and opens up many new possibilities for the staff and students at the school, all the while protecting them from harmful UV exposure!
