Client: 20 Churchill Place
Type of works: ventilation system
The building on 20 Churchill Place, purpose built for State Street Corporation, comprises three main sections; a 17 storey block to the north clad in natural stone, an eight storey podium wing of clear glass curtain wall to the south and a natural stone base which wraps the building on three sides.
FCS Ductwork commissioned Fläkt Woods engineers to design the most effective ventilation mix. A combination including toilet extract fans, Box andCopfordfans plus JM axial flow fans fitted with inverters, proposed as the optimum solution.
The building has a floor area of 355,000 square feet with 12 office floors above ground on the northern section and four floors on the southern section. The JM fans are being used principally for ventilation, with some handling smoke ventilation at 300ºC for 1 hour and others rated at standard temperature. Many different sizes have been specified, ranging from 500 mm -1,400 mm in diameter.
