Through one of our top client’s, Purcell Construction, we have been working on VHI’s offices in Kilkenny for well over a year now as the fantastic refurbishment and expansion of their state of the art offices continues.
There has been a number of sides to this work. Initially we were asked to supply and fit an exterior solar film to 6 large roof lights on the roof of their building. As these roof lights are situated where a large number of staff are working, management was very anxious to maintain maximum natural light entering the office. There was a reluctance to install blinds as these would darken the areas and would require ongoing maintenance. The film we installed was our premium exterior silver reflective and the results have been excellent. The glare on computer screens is drastically reduced and the solar gain reduction is very significant.
Such was the success of the solar film that we have been installing it on extensive amounts of glazing throughout their offices and all of the feedback is of staff finding their offices far more comfortable places to work. The main objective for us is to cause minimum disruption to staff as there are vast amounts of people working in these offices and to date we have not had one complaint.
We have also now fitted privacy film and manifestations to a numerous amount of offices for VHI. Recently they wished to partially obscure the glass partitions and then apply their logo to the glazing. Working with their management, builders and designers the detail was finalised and was all completed on Christmas week.
This has been a flagship project and the results have been excellent and has been an extremely satisfying job.
