Gilberts (Blackpool) has supplied a façade ventilation solution to the former Olympic Stadium, which is now the home of West Ham United FC and UK Athletics.
Balfour Beatty has spent the past two years transforming the stadium to ready it for West Ham United’s move, which was completed before the start of the 2016/17 Premier League season. The project included a new roof, accommodation for up to 54,000 spectators and 3,500 hospitality visitors.
The works included the specification of £250,000 worth of ventilation louvres, integrated into the new architectural double-glazed cladding and curtain walling façades.
The ventilation louvres were developed by Gilberts (Blackpool), who worked in conjunction with English Architectural Glazing to engineer a combination of standard and bespoke louvre designs to accommodate and mirror the form and lines of the stadium.
Gilberts’ WGK75 standard lourves and Series 27 acoustic weather louvres were integrated into the new cladding systems and curtain walling, masking the plant whilst ensuring optimum airflow with weather and noise attenuation.
The design and installation of the louvres was a complex procedure, as some areas of the louvres were inclined at a forward angle, whilst some faceted to follow the structure shape and others were engineered to a bespoke shape at Gilberts 85,000ft2 manufacturing facility.
Gilberts WGK75 provides 50 percent free ventilation area whilst providing a balanced appearance whatever the louvre panel size. The Series 27 delivers noise emission control up to 11dB transmission loss and weatherability in the most difficult of conditions.
