AET Flexible Space, leading provider of Under Floor Air Conditioning systems has supplied forty of their innovative low energy Fantiles for the flexible meeting pods at the Sky Central media campus in Osterley, West London.
The outstanding Sky Central building is the result of a multi-disciplinary collaboration of designers and engineers; including AL_A, PLP Architecture, Hassell, Arup and Mace. The design brief was to create a highly flexible, connected space with a focus on wellbeing. The result is a modern, safe, healthy and environmentally sustainable, BREEAM outstanding building, which is simple, intuitive and people-centric.
Ventilation is achieved primarily by means of a central plant displacement ventilation system, but outlets such as swirl diffusers and grilles offer little or no control to react to changing loads and designers were concerned that the meeting room pods would be at risk of sub cooling when not occupied and over-heating if the occupancy in these areas exceeded the design provision.
AET Flexible Space Fantiles were selected by consultants Arup as a solution to offer further load control without compromising the flexible design of the meeting pods, and were specified after Arup were satisfied that the very low acoustic levels achieved would be non-intrusive to users of the meeting pods.
