Sky Central Campus boosts airflow with AET FantilesAET Flexible Space

Sky Central Campus, Osterley

Osterley, West London

AET Flexible Space Fantiles were specified by Arup to provide additional airflow and user control for approximately 40 modular meeting room pods located within the 45,000 sq m campus.  Arup Acoustic specialists were satisfied that the very low acoustic levels achieved would be non-intrusive to users of the meeting pods.

  • Architects = AL_A, Hassell, PLP Architecture
  • Consultant = Arup
  • Main Contractor = Mace
  • Fitout Contractor = Como Group

The design brief was to create a highly flexible, connected space with a focus on wellbeing.  The 45,000 m2 timber-framed building with its triple height atrium, is vast and wide span, with deep floor plates offering high levels of visual connectivity.  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.

The building has been awarded BREEAM Outstanding.
