Old Dominion University wanted additional daylight brought into the building, to increase the efficiency of the mechanical systems and cut the building’s energy demands by 20 percent.
Moseley Architects specified CS Cantilevered and Vertical Sun Controls to reduce heat and glare. In conjunction with the sunshades, CS Interior Lightshelves were installed on the building’s southern elevation to create a complete Daylight Management System.
Lightshelves bring daylight deeper into the building, which has positive benefits on building occupants and reduces the overall building’s energy costs, by reducing reliance on artificial lighting. Additionally increased insulation, external sunshades, windows that increase daylight and other innovations that increase the efficiency of mechanical systems are designed cut the building’s energy demands by 20 percent.
In addition to Sun Controls and Lightshelves the project has C/S Storm Resistant Louvers and Paralinear Grilles.
