Children attending Glenpark will benefit from plenty of natural light thanks to VELUX Modular Skylights with built-in blinds.

Glenpark provides 100 places for 3-4 year olds and eligible two-year olds around the Greenock area, west of Glasgow.

A commitment by the Scottish Government to increase free early learning and childcare hours available in Scotland from 600 to 1,140 per year by 2020 proved to be the catalyst for creating this inspiring development

Holmes Miller Architects had to ensure that both children and staff could access the benefits of natural light and ventilation, whilst identifying an easy mechanism to control glare and provide shade.

Following careful evaluation, Holmes Miller Architects specified VELUX Modular Skylights because of two unique features of the system:

  1. In-built blinds - provide efficient, reliable shade that is easy to control using the VELUX INTEGRA® system
  2. Tight in plane solution of the VELUX Northlight – fitting closer to the roof means less outward protrusion, creating a slimmer aesthetic

The in-built blinds of the VELUX Modular Skylights and tight in plane profile provided us with a unique solution for Glenpark. We have not seen factory-fitted blinds on any other skylight system.

We like the fact that VELUX Modular Skylights are the only system prefabricated offsite, which means a quicker, easier and safer installation.
