Our design team were able to meet all current building control requirements and engineer a solution that would allow the incoming tenant to modify and adapt the system to suit their specific fit out requirements. A high quality ‘Category A’ fit out has been produced with varying future uses in mind future proofing the building for the terms of the plant.

Energy efficiency is a key consideration and the technology introduced offered substantial savings over the existing obsolete installation.  Energy efficient if engineered effectively can also be tax efficient, and go hand in hand, in meeting the requirements of the Carbon Trust in qualifying for enhanced capital allowance (ECA’s)

Whilst the technology and equipment installed is state of the art, grilles and diffusers often go overlooked.  Careful consideration was given to diffuser layout and selection to minimise the nuisance of draughts.  Ducted fan coils, connected via a low velocity ductwork infrastructure to swirl diffusers minimise noise and draught levels, maximising comfort levels.
