For any commercial rooflight refurbishment project, there are a number of building considerations to factor in. Therefore, VELUX Commercial‘s new detailed white paper explores these considerations influencing commercial building refurbishment.
The provision of daylight has long been a part of commercial roof design. From small individual rooms to large open spaces, bringing in natural light from above has always been recognised for its benefits to both the building’s users and its spaces.
It is expected 75% of the buildings we use today will still be with us in 2050. As a result the need for refurbishment solutions is only likely to increase.
Building owners and operators therefore must ensure their assets remain functional and safe. All this, while improving comfort for building users in the face of a changing climate. Compared to a new-build development, the obvious difference for a refurbishment project is working with an existing building. The level to which the building needs to be, or is going to be, refurbished influences what solutions are appropriate.
And when it comes to the roof, with a primary function to shelter and protect, refurbishment ranges from a like-for-like replacement of existing rooflights to a whole-building refurbishment.
For any commercial rooflight refurbishment project, there are a number of building considerations to factor in. VELUX Commercial’s white paper looks at the considerations impacting commercial building refurbishment.
VELUX also recognise how these factors can differ for the various building types such as schools, leisure venues and listed heritage buildings and so we further explore the specific needs for key applications and how these can influence refurbishment specification.
