1998 / 2016 New Build Refurbishment

Originally completed in 1998, Flexible Space was specified for this new build development after BAA Lynton carried out a feasibility study, comparing underfloor air conditioning against ceiling based air conditioning installed in a near identical building at Heathrow. The developers were able to demonstrate a 2m total reduction in building height, equating to a saving of around £200,000 in materials and calculated that 25% more floor area is available using the underfloor system as opposed to a fan coil option. Savings in construction time were in the region of five weeks enabling a much earlier handover and subsequently attracting earlier rental income. In 2015 AET returned to First Point to carry out equipment upgrades.
