AET Flexible Space will again be visiting the world’s biggest Property Expo, MIPIM in Cannes this year to meet with Architects, Developers and Investors to introduce the AET Flexible Space Under Floor Air Conditioning system and the financial benefits for commercial developments around the world. MIPIM is renowned for attracting senior decision makers from all sectors of the property industry under one arena and is held at the waterside location of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes every year in March.
AET Flexible Space has a long standing relationship with MIPIM; exhibiting and attending both MIPIM and MIPIM Asia since 2007. AET Flexible Space works closely with Architects and Developers as well as Occupiers using the MIPIM forum to introduce them to the major benefits that adopting an under floor system can bring to a development when considered early enough in the design phase.
The AET Flexible Space system utilises the plenum beneath a raised floor as the ventilation duct, eliminating the need for ceiling based duct work, reducing height of construction by more than 10% and making it easy and economical to adapt to changes in the workplace. The conditioned air is introduced into the space via floor recessed fan terminal units or Fantiles, which are easily relocated with the 600 x 600mm raised floor tiles and also feature integrated controllers allowing users to personally adjust temperature and fan speed settings.
Well designed buildings services can have a huge impact on total construction costs, both initial and operational, and buildings which have adopted the AET Flexible Space system have seen cost savings in the region of 10-15%, and energy savings of up to 30%. Projects adopting the concept have been highly commended in previous years, winning awards for sustainability and green building. Glan Blake Thomas, owner and Managing Director of AET has promoted the concept of modular plenum based services for over twenty years, and has presented seminars and papers to a number of forums including MIPIM. The 80,000 m2 Arup designed Parkview Green building in Beijing with AET Flexible Space equipment installed has won a total of ten awards including the MIPIM Asia Green Building Award.
Projects featuring AET Flexible Space equipment include; the 25,000 m2 Kuwait State Audit Bureau, the 60,000 m2 Nina Tower in Hong Kong, the 52,000 m2 Daman Tower in Dubai, 180 Great Portland Street, 55 Baker Street, Manchester Civil Justice Centre, Tricorn House Birmingham and a number of London refurbishments amongst others.
