AET Flexible Spaces supplied underfloor air conditioning systems as part of an £18million investment for Blackheath High School.
The project involved the design and construction of a three-storey new build, aesthetically designed to blend with the existing Victorian structure.
Due to the underground location of the resource centre, air conditioning was required for this area, and an underfloor air conditioning system was specified by consultant Hilson Moran so that the ceiling space, featuring the unique pyramidal skylights, could be left exposed.
A single CAM-V33 Direct Expansion downflow unit serves the air-conditioned zone, and the conditioned air is supplied into the space by 14 TU4 Fantiles. The CAM-V receives spent air back for re-conditioning via high level transfer grilles.
A major challenge with this project was the 900mm high underfloor void within the main resource area, requiring special modification to the CAM baseframe and raised floor substructure.
The new state of the art facility reached practical completion over the summer of 2018 and was ready for students to use in September at the start of the new school year.
