Kensington worked with ISG construction to come up with a shading solution for the new Cardiff Business School (CarBS) building. This iconic building was designed by Boyes Rees Architects to achieve a BREEAM excellent specification and was also Shortlisted for Design through the Innovation category at the RICS Wales Awards 2015. The building also received a Constructing Excellence in Wales Health and Safety Award 2015. The Rolshade 430 roller blinds provided by Kensington systems Ltd have helped achieve this design standard. They also provide flexible shading thanks to the 3% shading material used, which offers great outward visibility for the students whilst reducing solar gain and glare within the rooms.
