SystemCAM-V Underfloor supply air and high level return air
2015 New Build
Underfloor air conditioning was specified by The Brinkfell Partnership for the sixth form common room and study area located on the 2nd floor of the new wing extension, Bridge Studios. Phase 2: Bridge Studios is a £4.1million new development and part of the Sir William Perkin’s School Masterplan, devised by IID Architects. Bridge Studios is a three storey structure with a roof terrace, the ground floor offering two drama studios which can convert to a large lecture theatre, and the second floor is dedicated sixth form space. The new block is connected to the existing dining hall by an atrium space with a large pitched glazed roof.
The ventilation system was to provide low energy comfort cooling with high levels of fresh air to the communal space. The consultant opted for a flexible system which would satisfy both high and transient occupancy levels which could adapt to future change of use within the space.
