Natural ventilation system offers environmental control to new build

  • 5 Mar 2015

The new 14-storey building has been fitted with a natural ventilation system for environmental control to help it achieve a high BREEAM rating

The new complex has been built as part of the 67 acre King’s Cross Central Development.

It provides 150,000 square feet of office space whilst also accommodating a swimming pool, leisure centre, café and public library.

To achieve low carbon emissions, the building has been designed with low glazing ratios and energy efficient ventilation.

Natural ventilation

SE Controls supplied a natural ventilation system to the project.

The system was specified to maintain energy efficient control over the indoor air quality within the building.

The ventilation system has been designed with a series of sensors and actuation systems to provide the precise environmental control that was required.

The actuation systems automate and control the opening of windows, enabling carbon dioxide levels and temperature levels to be managed efficiently.

This makes it easier for people within the building to maintain a comfortable and sustainable working environment.

Over 200 SCCO 24 30 concealed tandem and single chain actuators were installed on the building’s top hung vents.

These actuators are controlled by 68 NVLogiQ 6Amp power supply units (PSUs) and actuated by the building’s central BMS.

SE Controls also installed 12 SECO 24 40 twin chain actuators and a 30 Amp PSU panel to provide additional ventilation control within the North atrium of the building.
