Ebook about intelligent natural ventilation
Imagine you could reduce a building’s area used for ventilation by 90%, what would be the impact on your design and final performance of that building? This eBook has been written to address some of the issues and opportunities that Architects worldwide face when designing buildings that needs to be ventilated and meet sustainable requirements.
In this eBook, you’ll discover:
1. How to select the right window actuators 2. The advantages of intelligent natural ventilation for saving energy and design space 3. How natural ventilation creates healthy and comfortable buildings 4. Intelligent natural ventilation solutions in both new and existing construction The eBook will also showcase inspiration from innovative projects that use intelligent natural ventilation techniques.

BREEAM, “Excellent” building with natural ventilation
City of Glasgow Colleges took a definitive commitment to the environment by embracing several sustainable design strategies such as automated natural ventilation. To reduce heat loads and maintain air quality, the atrium acts as a natural stack to drive cross ventilation through the building.See the full case
Zero-energy strategy with natural ventilation
HouseZero of Harvard University was renovated to inspire others by how older, existing structures can be altered to become ultra-efficient facilities. The older indoor climate systems were fully replaced with a new indoor climate paradigm which relies on the addition of thermal mass and radiant surfaces.See more
BREEAM, “Outstanding” center focuses on low carbon approaches
The new Student Centre of the University College London is a flagship for sustainable development in the urban environment. UCL’s strategy was to focus on a “passive first” approach to the indoor climate to reduce energy use and thereby carbon emissions.Learn more
State-of-the art campus features intelligent actuators
MECD is Manchester University’s brand-new Engineering Campus. Intelligent actuator technology was key to providing the best indoor climate possible via fresh air ventilation. MotorLink® communication technology was chosen because it ensures seamless integration between the BMS and window automation.Read the case
Intelligent actuator communication in smoke ventilation
Augusta University Cancer Research Center chose WindowMaster actuators and MotorControllers as part of the building’s heat and smoke management strategy. The actuators and controllers are enabled with MotorLink® so that they can communicate directly with the building management systems about their position and status.Read more
