Britain's Energy Coast Construction Skills Centre Rooflight

Architect: Day Cummins Ltd

Main Contractor: ESH Construction

Product: Ritchlight Ultra & Ritchlight Mono Pitch Skylights

Completed: 2013

Brett Martin was appointed to supply and install a comprehensive rooflights package at the Construction Skills Centre at Lakes College in Cumbria including its biggest ever Ritchlight Ultra hip-ended skylight.  As part of the new build project by main contractor ESH Construction, Brett Martin’s installation team installed the huge Ritchlight skylight which measured an impressive 12.3m in length and 4.7m wide.

The skylights package also featured two large monopitch skylights measuring 12.3 m long by 4.7 m on the downslope to bring maximum daylight into the College. All the skylights were supplied with white powder coated glazing bars and toughened over laminated glass for additional strength and durability.

Constructed to BREEAM 'very good' standard the Construction Skills Centre has been designed to be energy efficient and lighting controls have been fitted to ensure the artificial lighting is controlled when there is sufficient daylight in the Centre ensuring the most economic use of energy.  These architectural rooflights also met the project’s aesthetic demands.
