Best Workplace Award for Pentel Job

7 Jan 2013

The iconic Fort Dunlop building has awarded the British Council for Offices (BCO) “Test of Time” Award in the annual BCO awards. This is the second BCO award for this building, it having won the Refurbished/Recycled Workplace prize in 2008.

The citation reads; “In 2012, it is a worthy winner of this second Test of Time Award, as the development has proven its ability to respond to changes in tenant requirements, implemented reductions in energy consumption, and maintains an impressive 96% occupancy with 54 tenants, even in a very difficult market.”

Pentel Contracts has installed Astralux 3000 roller blinds using a robust screen fabric to virtually all floors in this building. On the top floor the roller blinds are motorised with manually operated versions on the other floors.

Correctly specified and installed blinds have a significant impact on the internal environment of any building helping to reduce glare, harvest natural light and control heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter.
