At an early stage, Novum suggested the use of ETFE Air Filled Pillows in place of the proposed pitched glazing to flood the corridors with natural light. As a non-fragile material, the use of ETFE could accommodate an accelerated installation program offering significant savings. The Novum AFP-System was included throughout the campus and included a Stressed Skin Membrane System (SSM-System) on external canopies to cohesively link clinical areas.
