Designing Healthy Buildings

When designing any new build, renovation or extension, the increasing issue of overheating should be addressed. Primarily a concern during the summer months, it also happens throughout the winter, with indoor temperatures rising to uncomfortable and unsafe levels that can put occupant health at risk. 

An appropriately sized, positioned and specified external shading device can help to create more sustainable buildings that are comfortable and healthy for their users, with lower running and maintenance costs.
