Bakery - Lazonby, Cumbria
line with the owner of Bells Bakery, Michael Bell's, belief
that only the best produce should go into all his products,
it was a natural thought that his new head office in Lazonby
should incorporate the very latest in efficiency and comfort
for his business operation and staff.
this in mind, a top team of architects and designers was
given the challenge of designing a building giving as much
natural daylight and natural air circulation as possible.
Of course, a large part of this would be the control of
solar heat gain and solar glare.
architects therefore called in IBS for an initial assessment
the event, IBS installed electrically operated blinds in
a full cassette system, incorporating our super slim-line
a cut in solar glare by up to 85% making life very comfortable
A massive reduction in solar gain, used in conjunction with
natural venting, keeping the premises and staff cool when
things get hot.
Electric operation for ease of use. As a bonus, the blinds
act as insect screens during the summer months.
A reduction in the building's overall carbon foot print.
