Over the past 10 years, we’ve seen a significant increase in demand for atriums and rooflights from our clients.
There is much evidence on the benefits of daylight in buildings, in terms of both wellbeing and energy saving.
Studies have shown that when employees are exposed to natural light during the day, this can help to boost sleep and in return, following a good night’s sleep, employees are found to be more productive. Within the retail sector, natural light can also help with happiness levels, for both staff and customers, which can only be good for business.
And, as less artificial lighting is required where there is a natural abundance of natural light, buildings become more energy efficient.
