Eight Midlands-based schools are set to benefit from new facilities, constructed under the government funded Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP). Gilberts of Blackpool has provided MFS ventilation units for the project.
PSBP is targeting school buildings in poor condition across the UK, offering opportunities for rebuild and refurbishment. The eight schools within the scheme’s Midlands batch will be designed, constructed and maintained by Carillion for the Education Funding Agency (EFA).
The contractor will be supported by Dodd Group and M&E consultant, Aecom.
Gilberts of Blackpool has leant its engineering and air movement expertise to the project, to ensure that the team will be able to address the issues raised in the EFA’s ventilation specification for PSBP.
To meet the project’s requirements, Gilberts specified its Mistrale Fusion System (MFS-VN), a roof-mounted hybrid solution that has been integrated into each of the school’s roof turrets.
Each turret has been fitted with two MFS128 fusion units, combined with mechanically-operated intake and extract louvres. The systems will work to provide stack ventilation to internal open areas, such as dining rooms and sports and assembly halls. Dampers have been integrated to regulate airflow.
Offering a comprehensive ventilation solution, the bespoke system provides an energy efficient balance of air quality and thermal comfort.
In addition to VN, MFS is available as a standard through-wall and through-window system.
Like all Gilberts’ products, MFS units are manufactured inside the company’s dedicated engineering facility and tested in-house.
Designed to ventilate internal spaces, MFS combines internal and external air. A mixing damper within the system works to modulate airflow and extract heat from the warm exhaust air; meanwhile, a low energy fan blends the internal air to ensure even distribution and control over carbon dioxide levels and temperature.
Each MFS unit is capable of achieving operational noises of less than 30dbA. As required by BB93, the system has been developed to absorb external noise, which makes it suitable for use in classroom environments.
Gilberts assures that a standard, 32-person classroom can be adequately ventilated by two MFS128 single-sided units. This combination can achieve the 8 litres/sec/person fresh air required by the Department of Education BB101.
