ArchitectureLIVE are the UK agents for Ertex Solar, a specialist Photovoltaics manufacturer.

Ertex Solar's bespoke photovoltaics - BIPVs - can be integrated into a multitude of facades including windows, conservatories and roof lights which omit the need for any additional solar control.

Their integrated solutions cover the production of electrical energy, building skins, thermally insulated glass, sun-screening and security. Ertex Solar have an extensive and diverse portfolio of completed projects around the world including the UK and won the Institute for Sustainability's Innovation Competition in June 2014.  Their modules were also the first to be awarded the MCS 017 certification for BIPV in the UK to qualify for the Feed-In-Tarriff.

As the UK agents for Ertex Solar, ArchitectureLIVE facilitated the integration of this specialist BIPV facade into Rolfe Judd's design for a carbon-neutral primary school extension in Islington, London.  ArchitectureLIVE also designed and implemented BIPV glazing for a new-build secondary school in Newbury, West Berkshire.  The BIPV modules were designed in such a way to omit solar glare and overheating whilst optimising daylight within a new multi-purpose space. Using high-performance Sun Power cells allowed maximum electrical yields.
