Shorelines ITT

Birkenhead, UK

The Shorelines Building in Birkenhead is a converted Victorian railway shed constructed in 1889 and fully refurbished in 2012 offering Grade-A office accommodation

Total Area

880 sq.m

System
CAM-C Direct Expansion Underfloor supply air, underfloor return air

2012 Refurbishment

The Shorelines Building in Birkenhead is a converted Victorian railway shed constructed in 1889 and previously used by the Littlewoods Organisation.  A full refurbishment and fit-out completed in 2012 comprised a new steel mezzanine structure and new heating and cooling system creating Grade-A office accommodation on the mezzanine floors above the communal space in the atrium area.

Underfloor air conditioning was specified to work alongside the naturally ventilated design and the 880 sq. m of mezzanine space is served by three zones, each with a CAM-C unit supplying and receiving air at underfloor level.  Conditioned air is introduced into the space via 35 standard TU4 – AC Fantiles recessed into the 300mm floor plenum.  The CAM-C option was chosen as the steel lattice roof design could not accommodate building services and still be left exposed.  The project achieved BREEAM “Very Good” rating.
