The MOD asked Whitesales to provide an economical solution for daylight and smoke ventilation for a new 3200m2 office and storage facility to meet their strict demands and high standards. The aim was to install a 5% ratio of smoke ventilation to floor area with a control system for each zone that met current legislation and best practice. Smoke detectors, break glasses and manual overrides were required for each control panel, and the units needed to capture daylight and diffuse natural light to reduce glare.
Whitesales worked with the project architect and principal contractor to design, assemble and install a solution that provided the optimum number and sizes of vents for the floor area using the Es-Vent smoke ventilation system.
The MOD significantly reduced their energy needs and maximised their budget by installing Es-Vent smoke ventilators, flooding the building with natural light and allowing them to switch off centre lights for most of the day.
