Allerød Private School in Northern Zealand, Denmark, opened in the summer of 2017 and is located in a former two-storey office complex. In connection with the shift from office to school, the number of users increased significantly. This required an upgrade of the existing natural ventilation system, which originally consisted of automatic control of façade windows and skylights.
The upgrade level varies from classroom to classroom, due to their widely different designs and layouts.
The following three upgrade levels were carried out:
1 Maintaining the natural ventilation solution, but with changed management strategy including increased automatic ventilation.
2 Maintaining the natural ventilation solution as well as the establishment of assistive mechanical extraction (hybrid ventilation) and adapted control strategy.
3 Maintaining the natural ventilation solution as well as the establishment of facade-mounted decentralized ventilation units with heat recovery (hybrid ventilation) and adapted control strategy.
The upgrade took place over four months concurrently with other preparations for the school.
In addition to classrooms, WindowMaster’s system is used to ventilate a large central atrium via automatically controlled windows in the facade and roof.
The amount of ventilation and the ventilation principle are based on local weather data as well as the desired room temperature and CO2 level in the individual areas.
In each room, a panel is installed for manual override of the automation. This allows students and teachers to change the position of the window if more or less fresh air is desired. After 30 minutes, the system goes back to automatic operation.
