The project aims to maximise use of natural energy resources in order to reduce cost in use in terms of energy usage, plant maintenance and optimization of controls. The building is also designed to maximise the use of natural daylight whilst controlling glare and overheating by using solar shading and insulated translucent panels for the high level glazed elements.
