CASE STUDY:

YELM
MIDDLE
SCHOOL

At this new-build school gymnasium, students were in need of a recreational space that could facilitate sports activities and large gatherings.

 

It's a proven fact that daylight improves student performance, increases energy levels, and boosts morale, so integrating sunlight was a natural choice for illumination. However, the natural daylight needed to be controllable for occasions in which the space required darkness to use the large projector screen.

 

With Skyvault M74s, we were able to provide the gymnasium with ambient natural daylight that could be controlled at the touch of a button.
