The VELUX Group creates better living environments by bringing daylight and fresh air into people’s homes all over the world. We have built a strong position in the residential market over more than 80 years, and we have now expanded our business to the commercial market. We offer daylight-and-fresh-solutions for all the other types of buildings, where people spend time during the day: offices, schools, healthcare facilities, airports, shopping malls and retail stores, large public buildings, railway stations and industrial buildings.
The VELUX Group’s first step into the commercial market was in 2012, when we launched VELUX Modular Skylights. Today, the strategy is to develop a leading position in this market, and in 2018 we acquired three daylighting companies: Wasco, JET Group and Vitral. These operations and our VELUX Modular Skylights form VELUX Commercial, a relatively new division under the VELUX Brand. We design, manufacture and market daylight solutions for commercial buildings.
The VELUX Group is a global market leader in roof windows, flat roof windows, sun tunnels and roof window blinds. We have 11,500 employees located worldwide, sales companies in 40 countries, and 27 production sites in ten countries.
Originally built in 1961, the school is characterised by classic high-quality 60s architecture and design.
However, many years of use have taken their toll on the building and a recent refurbishment has brought the school up to modern standards. As part of the renovation, the school’s 60 year old skylights were replaced by 104 VELUX modular skylights that created a bright and attractive learning environment.
The renovation has been well received by the local community and has helped restore pride among students and teachers at the school.
Four rows of Northlights, 104 modules in all, were installed.
The installation was completed in less than two weeks.
7 venting skylight modules ensure fresh air throughout the day.
Students and teachers are especially pleased with the central atrium, which echoes the original aesthetics of the building and fills the school with daylight.
