Woodland Trust

A new HQ for conservation charity the Woodland Trust employs VELFAC glazing to actively contribute to energy efficiency across the building, resulting in a development which has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.  Designed by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the building's external facades feature three-storey high VELFAC glazing interspersed with timber cladding, evoking the spacing and verticality of woodland.

The glazing delivers maximum daylight to the open plan interior office space, with solar gain minimised by the use of solar controlled glass. The VELFAC system also comprises manually opening and automatic windows which together play a key role in the building's sophisticated natural ventilation system.
