Constructed by the Leadbitter Group and built to achieve BREEAM Excellent rating, the academies are the latest schools in the UK to benefit from the installation of the revolutionary Multi-service foil. A joint venture between Zehnder and Whitecroft Lighting, the Multi-service foil brings together the expertise of both companies to provide a multi-functional ceiling raft which enables all the essential classroom services to be delivered from one single unit.
Optimising energy performance in line with BREEAM requirements both the heating and lighting functionality of the Multi-service foil help reduce the energy load of the school, at the same time as ensuring a consistently comfortable and productive learning environment for pupils. By combining maximum use of daylight with long 54W T5 lamps the Multi-service foil uses less energy than alternatives and offers savings of up to 25%. In addition the highly efficient and exceptionally responsive nature of a radiant heating system means the Multi-service foil can achieve energy efficiency savings of up to 40% on other heating technologies.
