Jaga trench heaters for Sky building

Jaga trench heaters for Sky building

Jaga's Mini Canal heating solution was chosen for the Sky Believe in Better Building providing an extremely energy efficient solution. The Sky Believe in Better Building is a showpiece in the heart of the Sky UK Limited West London campus.

This unique timber frame supports the building’s steep glass façades, which whilst complementing the primary architectural feature of the building, provided their own challenges for the project. Glass is a poor insulator so Mace MEP sought a manufacturer that could provide a specialist solution to combat with inherent levels of heat loss, and one with proven experience in overcoming the challenges of working on fast-moving, sustainable commercial building projects.

The Mini Canal’s powerful natural output capability satisfied the need for comfortable temperatures, and was the ideal solution for meeting BREEAM requirements through its Low-H₂O radiator technology – low mass, low water content radiators that use just a tenth of the water required by standard steel panel radiators.

William Couch, Mechanical Engineer at Mace MEP, said "Jaga were involved from the beginning and worked with us throughout the design period. They were able to stagger the deliveries so that we received them floor-by-floor, which was synchronised with the construction programme,” he added. “With a programme this fast there were inevitable design changes as the build developed. Jaga were always quick to respond when we needed modifications made to the trench boxes as specifications changed.”

In adapting proven products to meet the requirements of the project, Jaga helped to ensure that the architectural vision for the Sky Believe in Better Building was retained and that its occupants could work in a comfortable, energy efficient environment.
