Customer testimonial – Bluebridge ferry terminal
The best thing about our new building is the sustainable design features,
especially the automatic windows, that came as a bonus – Sheryl Mateni,
Managing Director Strait Shipping, 2003.
Passengers waiting for the Bluebridge ferry at Wellington's Glasgow Wharf
benefit from an early Solarhomes installation in this waterfront building.
Fresh air on the waterfront means thermostatically controlled natural ventilation
is highly efficient at eliminating the need for air conditioning. Solarhomes
sensors open the windows when carbon dioxide levels exceed 900ppn and close
the windows whenever supplementary radiant heaters are on. The system has
run successfully for 6 years and saves a considerable amount in cooling energy.
