Lake Nona, Fla. - (September 24, 2012) – Window Interiors, an industry-leading window treatment solutions company, recently completed work for the Valencia College Lake Nona campus.
The window covering specialists worked with the college’s design department to specify manual WI solar shades in more than 18 classrooms and support spaces. Each window is protected with GREENGUARD-certified Phifer SheerWeave fabric that promotes energy-efficiency and sustainability.
“Adding solar shades to the Lake Nona campus not only promotes environmentally-friendly measures that will save energy costs, but also improves the educational experience of students and teachers by protecting them from outside heat and glare,” said Kelly Garcia, Senior Project Manager at Window Interiors. “We worked to provide a window coverings solution for Valencia College that fit the aesthetic of the building. The WI solar shades compliment the building’s natural design to provide a visually-pleasing and comfortable learning atmosphere.”
WI shades are custom-made solar shades fabricated and manufactured by Window Interiors in Altamonte Springs. By choosing a local supplier, Valencia College decreased the carbon footprint of constructing the Lake Nona campus while helping promote a stronger Central Florida economic foundation.
Window Interiors is currently working with Valencia College on several projects on the East, Osceola and West campuses. The company has also worked on a number of other local projects, including Florida Hospital, The Amway Center, Adventist Group and the University of Central Florida.
