2015 New Build
Underfloor air conditioning was specified for the £16.5 million new build development at the University of Essex’ Colchester campus; the largest new building on campus since 1965 providing an integrated learning centre, library extension, media centre and council board room. The ventilation system was to provide low energy comfort cooling with high levels of fresh air to the mixed-use space. The client preferred a flexible system which would satisfy both high and transient occupancy levels and adapt to future change of use within the space.
The project was the first to install the new TU4-EC Fantile, the standard fan terminal unit with the addition of EC fan technology for improved energy efficiency and also makes use of the new Flexgateway for Modbus BMS system for improved control and communications.
The project had a sustainability target of BREEAM Very Good.
