This was a winning solution for everyone.
WPE Plc. is the largest media/entertainment company in Thailand, producing movies, television programs, news media, and animation graphics. The WPE building occupies an impressive 753,500 sqare feet (70,000 square meters). With 80% of the building’s façade covered in glass, plus skylights in the atrium, workers inside were plagued with terribly uncomfortable heat and glare. The glass exterior also produced high energy bills, as air-conditioning units ran constantly to cool the building.
Frustrated with the unwanted heat and glare entering the building, the owners contacted the exclusive distributor of LLumar window film in Thailand to specify a film product that could alleviate the problems. After thorough consultation and analysis, the highest heat-rejection film, R-20 SR CDF, was installed on the external façade and another film, N-1035B SR CDF, was installed in the front lobby and the atrium.
Building management reported that the project was conducted safely and professionally with little interruption to employees, who were able to continue their day-to-day operations during the installation. The owners loved the building’s new exterior appearance, while employees were relieved to have a more comfortable work environment. “Everybody gave their ‘thumbs up’ to the project,” said LLumar representative Jane Kannikar. “This was a winning solution for everyone.”
