The four storey red brick building dates back to 1905 and originally served as a Royal Mail sorting office. In 2000, the building was converted into office accommodation and occupied by Sainsbury’s as their headquarters. It was subsequently leased by Accenture for a few years before London Fire Brigade negotiated a 17 term lease and moved their headquarters to the site in 2007.
The building’s exterior has attractive warehouse style features, while the interior benefits from large open floor plates creating an expansive open plan layout. Underfloor air conditioning was specified to overcome restrictive height limitations common in older stock buildings.
The system specified was a full underfloor system, with underfloor supply and return air. The five floors of office space, including the basement is served by a total of 41 CAM-C units of different unit sizes and nearly 600 fan terminal units, including a number of slim-line Fantiles for areas with a particularly shallow floor plenum, and a similar number of floor standing Console terminal units where recessed units are not suitable.
