In the summer of 2015, the classrooms at Ordrup School's third floor were rebuild. It was the result of a diligent effort to improve the indoor climate.
Before the rebuilding, teachers and students complained about headaches and weariness. Then former head master Jan Hansen recalls:
"When you are in such a state, you aren't very productive - and you are certainly not very teachable."
Teacher Michael Svensson experienced the problems first hand:
"Sometimes I simply asked the pupils to leave the classroom for a while," Svensson recalls, elaborating:
"The pupils quickly lost their concentration. I myself got tired too"
School management contacted VELUX Denmark, partly because they knew the company had previously made a good rebuilding of a school in a northern municipality.
Considerations of working environment, energy consumption and economy all led to a rebuilding with installation of automatically controlled VELUX roof windows.
