The Phoenix Partnership created a new, 85,000 square-foot premises to accommodate its growing staff numbers, as it aims to increase its staff levels from 200 up to 650 in the next few years.
A specific element of the brief was to achieve zero mechanical cooling through utilising natural ventilation solutions, whilst delivering optimum flexibility for the office space.
Gilberts of Blackpool was approached to help deliver the natural ventilation element, installed by M&E contractors AF Connell.
Gilberts provided a cost effective ventilation solution which offered maximum airflow characteristics, whilst meeting the strict thermal, air tightness and weatherproofing standards for Building Regulations.
All 156 of Gilberts’ high performance louvres integrated into the façade to provide a minimum free ventilation area of 50% – achieving a U value of 0.93W/m2K and air leakage as low as 5m3/hour/m2.
The natural ventilation ensures fresh air to almost all areas on the external perimeter of the building.
It is integrated within the office space with a mixed mode mechanical system to provide fresh air for the deep plan inner areas.
