Holy Spirit School
Studies show that natural daylighting is a critical element of any educational facility that directly impacts student academic performance. It is evident from the design of the Holy Spirit School in Cochrane that the Calgary Catholic School District recognizes this important fact.
In this school, Embedia's Solarai shading controls play an important role. The convenience of local controls allow teachers and staff to optimize their learning environments, while overrides and integration elements allow principals and other emergency response staff to "black out" or otherwise manage the entire facility from a central location. Effective shading control also helps improve energy efficiency of the facility and meet environmental goals.
