An indoor environment that promotes learning
In the summer of 2015, the classrooms at Ordrup School's third floor were rebuilt following diligent efforts to improve the indoor climate.
Before the rebuilding, teachers and students complained about headaches and feeling tired. Former headmaster 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.
