GEZE UK has played a vital role in the refurbishment of West Court, part of Jesus College, Cambridge, by providing a natural ventilation system that creates an ideal learning environment.
It is GEZE’s award-winning Slimchain automatic window drive which features, managed by the WS 1000 indoor climate building control.
