State-of-the-art ventilation systems, supplied by Gilberts, will be ensuring a fresh, conditioned internal environment at Doncaster’s first and only sixth form college.
New College Doncaster, costing £20m and measuring 9450 metres squared, features 62 of Gilberts’ standard hybrid ventilation units, each with an integrated heat coil.
The school, which took 13 months to build, will open its doors for the first time this September.
“Gilberts had the ability, in-house, to design and deliver bespoke options from a standard product, to meet the specific design criteria or limitations at particular projects, based round natural ventilation which is the preferred methodology for educational buildings,” says BAM senior project services engineer Gavin Wilcox.
“Gilberts’ innovative approach gives us the ability to increase flow rates, utilise heat coils within the ventilation unit, so that that we were able to use just a single, discreet unit in most classrooms, and eliminate the need for radiators in the classrooms.
“As each unit is stand-alone, serving an individual classroom, repair & maintenance is simplified. The system also means there are fewer units overall, so reduced installation, interfacing into building management systems, maintenance- all beneficial to the lifetime costs of the building.”
