The scheme transforms The Wilson Art Gallery & Museum, allowing for improved access and enhanced opportunities for the display of its locally, regionally, nationally and internationally important art and heritage collections. It will also enable the Art Gallery & Museum to become a major venue for national and international touring exhibitions.
Energy efficiency is a key aspect of the design and a high performance glazing system on each floor affords natural light and allows passers-by to see in. The south façade’s louvered screen controls solar gain. The new building uses both passive and active features, including natural ventilation, and the installation of high efficiency boilers.
The Trend Building Energy Management System utilises 963 Graphic driven Supervisor Software and Main Plant Control Panels with IQ3Xcite Controllers and IQView8 Touch Screen Interface.
