Out of the Blue: Dynamic Liquid Crystal Windows

From cutting down on carbon emissions and maximising energy efficiency to enhancing the health and well-being of a buildings’ occupants, the latest ‘smart glass’ and ‘dynamic glazing’ solutions offer unparalleled opportunities. Designed to meet, if not exceed, standards for low and zero-emission buildings, Dynamic Liquid Crystal Windows by Eyrise provide the opportunity to minimise the need for artificial heating and cooling by optimising the use of that generated naturally. In this latest report, the technology’s performance is compared against its closest competitors on colour-rendering, switching speed, and circadian well-being to show where it leads the way.

Located on Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park (LUSEP), the 2,000m² four-storey development will provide sports organisations with environmentally future-proof accommodation that can be personalised to their requirements.

It is being built to Passivhaus Classic Accreditation to minimise operating expenses and CO₂ emissions, as well as maintain a thermally comfortable environment.

The facility will have a well-insulated building fabric for reducing heat loss and opening triple-glazed windows, heat pumps and solar shades to prevent overheating.

As part of the Getting Building Fund (GBF), Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership is delivering the new structure, which is scheduled for completion at the end of this year.

The new development will increase the total floor size of SportPark to 8,000m², enabling the further growth of a sports cluster and creating a Global Sports Hub.

It will have up to 400m² of office accommodation, offering flexible layouts to meet the needs of the organisations.

The new pavilion has been specifically designed to increase connectivity within the building and outside.

Loughborough University Sport associate pro-vice-chancellor Mike Caine said: “SportPark Pavilion 4 will provide the capacity to welcome yet more mission-driven organisations to the University, and to reinforce the East Midlands region’s potential as a global sports innovation hub, with Loughborough at its heart.”

“The SportPark expansion coincides with a growing number of innovation and technology-led sports businesses launching at, or relocating to, LUSEP, attracted to the collaborative environment and access to the University’s world-leading expertise in sports science, engineering, health and wellbeing, high-performance athlete base, and sports infrastructure.”
