Higher education buildings with smart glass dramatically impact the overall environment and wellness of the occupants. Studies show that the positive effects of daylight and unobstructed views are proven to increase student cognitive scores. Faculty are more productive with less absenteeism. Energy and maintenance costs drop, and administrators are better able to recruit students and faculty for a more desirable facility.
The award-winning LEED Gold sustainable design features materials including smart glass, to improve the comfort of the interior space and reduce energy needed to heat and cool the building.
Halio delivered a comfortable environment by mitigating solar glare and heat gain while preserving views to the exterior. We placed seating in challenging west and south facing perimeter areas where students gather in communal spaces and eating areas.
