Fenny Lock has seen a further two high-tech industrial units recently constructed by Glencar Construction for Baytree Logistics Properties. The land near Milton Keynes forms part of the Oxford-Cambridge Knowledge Arc and the development claims to be one of the most sustainable logistics developments ever built in the UK. Built to a BREEAM rating of “Excellent” and using circular economy principles, the units encompass a range of innovative features allowing future flexibility and a strong focus on the health and wellbeing of their occupants.
With the recognized health and wellbeing benefits of natural daylight in the built environment along with the ability to lower a building’s operational carbon emissions, selecting Zenon GRP rooflights by Hambleside Danelaw was an excellent choice!
Zenon Arc, a composite barrel vault rooflight solution, was specified to complement the Elite 3 SF500 system by the Euroclad Group. The triple skin rooflight assembly featured an independent in-plane liner, profiled to match the 32.200.1000 metal, and a double skin Zenon Arc manufactured using a weather sheet of Evolution LC1 for enhanced non-fragility and Service Life.
Zenon Evolution is Hambleside Danelaw’s low carbon rooflight product. By using advanced manufacturing reinforcement technology and continuous product development, we have been able reduce the amount of resin used during manufacture compared with our traditionally reinforced Zenon Pro range. The result is a thinner, lighter product with exceptional strength that exceeds the requirements of the industry standard non-fragility testing, withstanding impacts of more than twice the force needed to pass the test. The lower resin to glass ratio also reduces the embodied carbon content when compared to traditionally reinforced products with similar performance.
Delivered as part of the Euroclad Group’s Elite system and installed by Geo Roof Roofing & Cladding Contractors, the project was completed in 34 weeks.
