Wildlife For All

Wildlife For All

Ansell Lighting

Wildlife for all is an immensely driven charity which manage their own nature reserves here in Sussex and in South Africa. Their no-nonsense education approach focuses on the need for a deeper understanding to nature conservation and purposely work as non-paid professionals meaning that all donations are spent on genuine needs, such as buying land for nature.  ‘Wildlife for All’ has recently built a stunning new facility on their land in Sussex. The Oasis and Oasis Woods are a 15-acre nature reserve and education centre, set within an area of outstanding natural beauty in mid-Sussex.  Oasis Woods provides a glimpse of what ancient forest looked like before most of it was cleared for agriculture and other human activities long ago. There are mass displays of bluebells in May, leading downwards to a beautiful woodland stream inhabited by trout and visited by kingfishers. Woodpeckers and owls are heard daily and wild deer are commonly seen.  The new building within the Oasis is home to educational display boards, amongst other things and a lot of love went into creating this new facility.  For illumination, the facility is home to the Ansell Single Circuit Track encompassing the Single Circuit Low Profile Unity 1 Trackspot. The low-profile LED trackspots with integral driver feature a 355° rotation with 0-180° tilt on the track adapter which houses the driver, and the fittings have a mirror finish anodized reflector for optimum efficiency. The black body trackspots were supplied in 12W with a 4000K coolwhite appearance and having a CRI value of Ra90, allows for high quality illumination with the capability of accurately rendering colours. With a beam angle of 27 degrees, this provides a controlled light distribution pattern suitable for illuminating the displays. This installation complements such a stunning room, where so much love and energy poured into its construction, and which deserved lighting that enhanced the room to a much greater level.  The most crucial aspect for the application was to ensure that the selected trackspot lighting was visually comfortable. The installed Unity trackspots feature a microprism diffuser for optimum visual comfort and uniformity which made the world of difference and ensured the displays were easy on the eye. With the room showcasing important display boards which would be used to educate visitors, the lighting had to be just right.  Another major factor of why the Ansell Single Circuit Low Profile Unity 1 LED Trackspots offered the perfect solution was additionally due to the five-year warranty included and in its impressive LED lifespan of L80 to 68,000 hours.  Here at Ansell Lighting, we couldn’t be prouder to have supported ‘Wildlife for All’ as they continue to go from strength to strength in their mission to improve nature conservation and where their new facility will go far in improving, what already is a great experience for visitors, and the company is most pleased that its high-quality trackspots can play a part in that process.  Full list of product and accessory’s included: 4 x AMT1/B Mains Voltage 16A Single Circuit Track 1 Metre Black 2 x AMTINS/B 2Metre - Black Track Insert3 x AMTBC/B SingleCircuit Track Accessory - Butt Connector Black1 x AMTDE/B SingleCircuit Track Accessory - Dead End Black1 x Single Circuit Track Accessory – Live End Black8 x Single Circuit Low Profile Unity 1 LED Track 12W - Cool White – Black (the LEDs should come with the spotlights)2 x AMON/GU10/B SurfaceMonopoint– Black

Achieving the highest energy efficiency & sustainability standards by thermally isolating facade connections on a high rise tower in Morocco’s City of Light

Farrat Isolevel Ltd

Set to be the tallest building in Africa at 250-metres with 55 stories, Mohammed Tower IV is a new high-rise tower designed by Rafael de la Hoz & Hakim Benjelloun to resemble a rocket on its launch pad. The striking development will be visible from 50km in all directions and forms the centre piece in the Bouregreg Valley Development Project, which plays a leading role in the development programme for Rabat, ‘the City of Light,’ in the Moroccan Capital of Culture. Once complete, the project will provide a luxury hotel, commercial offices, high-end residential apartments, and a viewing sky terrace.The ChallengeSustainability and energy efficiency are both primary design considerations in this project, with the client aiming to achieve LEED Gold and HQE quality standards. LEED certification provides an independent guarantee of a building’s green features, with a LEED Gold rating representing first-class leadership in resource-efficient building design, construction, operations, and maintenance.Farrat were contacted via our export partner in the GCC region, UniGroup, to supply a high-performance, robust, and certified fire-resistant thermal break solution to mitigate against thermal bridging across façade connections for contemporary facade design company Glassline Abu Dhabi. Farrat Structural Thermal Breaks are favoured across the construction industry, as the most efficient & responsible way to thermally separate structural connections and prevent heat loss in the building envelope.The thermal breaks would form part of a wider sustainable construction program, alongside smart energy efficiency systems such as 3350 m² of photovoltaic solar panels on the South façade, rainwater recovery and wastewater recycling systems and an internal energy recovery system to produce hot water.The SolutionFollowing a review of the connection designs, Farrat TBF was selected as the optimal structural thermal break material for extensive use across the façade connections of Mohammed Tower, to prevent heat transfer through steel beams where the external building aspects meet the interior.Farrat TBF is an A2 rated non-combustible structural thermal break material capable of maintaining superior structural performance at temperatures more than 1000°C. Farrat TBF also provides high-level thermal performance to solve structural thermal bridge issues and exceeds all current fire regulatory requirements for buildings above (and below) 18m.Following several high-rise fire tragedies across the globe, increasing numbers of building designers are looking to go beyond the standard when it comes to fire safety.The DesignThe inherent non-combustible composition of Farrat TBF was the solution to the fire element of the design, allowing unrestricted use in the high-rise construction. Use of the material’s remarkably high compressive force resistance allowed Farrat to assess the transmission of loads through the structural connection, sufficient to maintain performance under influence from weather stresses.The Outcome“In designing and securing this high-performance project, Farrat utilised the full extent of our material research & development skills and harnessed our extensive experience of thermal bridging projects in all climates and circumstances around the globe,” states Chris Lister, Commercial Manager of Structural Thermal Breaks at Farrat.“The resulting construction details are to the highest levels of structural and fire safety performance whilst also being beautiful in their simplicity.”Structural Thermal Breaks with FarratFarrat Structural Thermal Breaks are favored across the construction industry, as the most efficient & responsible way to thermally separate structural connections and prevent heat loss in the building envelope.#onamission

Holloway & Holloway Architects Home Office - Unlimited Rooflight

Holloway & Holloway Architects Home Office - Unlimited Rooflight

VELUX Company Ltd

Vicky and Nick, the owners of Holloway and Holloway, a London based architecture studio, share their story on living and working under the same roof, in a stunning recently extended house where they added an Unlimited Rooflight. Questions to Vicky and Nick:What was the decision-making trigger in choosing daylight from above?To be honest there was no choice here. In a London mid-terraced property, even a semi-detached one, when you do a side infill to increase the rear of the property by filling in the gap between the properties, it creates a dark space in the centre of the property where there is no natural light.So, you generally counter this by adding roof lights in the ceiling over the new extension, and make sure that they are placed fairly close to the back of the room so that you can flood that space with natural light.Vertical windows tend to allow a good level of natural light to penetrate around 6 meters into a building. Not only do roof lights allow a lot more light in a space than a vertical window, but as you can place these in more central areas in the room, they are nearly the only way to get daylight into the centre of your house.We have our office in the central room of the property, so for us, we had to have good natural light levels in this area as we spend the most amount of time here in the whole house.You added a rather large rooflight to your extension - The Unlimited Rooflight. What impact does it have on the space?It is amazing how bright the space is. We get so much light from above that the space always has a wonderful vibrance to it during the daytime.But I think that possibly what’s even more striking than the amount of light itself is the size of the glass, its 5m² total, split into 2 pieces. It makes it feel as though there is more glass than there is solid roof up there, it really is the wow feature of the whole space.Whilst we had expected that when we designed it as it was always meant to be the feature in the room, what we hadn’t realized was how much it would make the space feel bigger. With extensions on a mid-terrace property, you are often limited as to how high you can build so your ceiling height can be capped at a certain level, but having this huge opening in the middle of the room makes the whole space feel like you’ve got this really grand ceiling height, it has such an effect on how the space feels. Tell us what was the timeline from inspiration to finished interiors? I'm sure it's a question you get very often.Indeed. Well we actually only found out about Vario by VELUX as we were on site, they were just about to start the roof construction as we found out about them, so we didn’t have a huge amount of time and had to get things organized very quickly! From finding the products to getting them on site it was only a matter of weeks, once we had chosen a size for the roof lights all we had to do was confirm the opening dimensions to our contractors, and double check with the structural engineer that the roof structure was ok to support the new roof light. Once that was all sorted all we had to do was wait, it was a very easy process. The project took around 4 months on site in total, but the roof lights go in fairly near the end of the project, so once they’re in it’s all very exciting, as you are close to completion.

Therefore the decision was taken to transform the former inner courtyards into a new vertical museum area. A hidden modern museum showcasing contemporary art within the walls of the old historic one. Two different worlds within one building. To protect the valuable art collection of paintings and drawings a solution was sought to bring as much indirect and northern light into the art rooms as possible. SOLUTIONIn this respect, Claus en Kaan architects created a fabulously ingenious design for the roof. The rooftop would be completed with no fewer than 198 triangular skylights. As well as presenting aesthetic value, the roof triangles are designed in such a way as to have northern light entering the museum. As north-facing windows would allow indirect light, an important feature to protect the valuable works of art inside. In addition, to provide extra reflection of light, the architects opted for a white roof.

'The finish is a high-quality, durable powder coating with a long life. It was selected with a metallic finish to form a protective layer, creating a lasting, soft sheen. This sheen offers a dynamic play of light on adjacent surfaces that will vary with changing light conditions throughout the day and across the different seasons of the year.''

More than 3,000 sq m of aluminium rainscreen cladding clad the exterior of the five-storey building. But the brightest feature is a series of perforated panels that accommodate LED lighting.“It’s a project that stands out not just for its scale, but also for the level of collaboration that has been necessary between Maple, lighting designers, architect and all contractors to make it a success,” said Maple’s Operations Manager, Peter Mattimore.
