Liverpool South Parkway

A smoke and natural ventilation system from SE Controls has been installed at Liverpool South Parkway, the flagship new rail and bus terminus serving the North West of England.

Combining two existing stations, Garston and Allerton, the newtransport interchange provides park and ride, shuttle bus and taxi services and will eventually comprise a direct rail link to Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport.

Designed by Jefferson Sheard Architects for Merseytravel, the £32m scheme has already won a number of awards for its innovative building techniques, successful regeneration and eco-friendly design. A sloping roof collects and recycles rainwater, and a wall fitted with photovoltaic solar panels contributes toward the building’s energy needs.

To ensure the safety of passengers and transport workers in the event of a fire, and improve the quality of indoor air, SE Controls’ brief was to design both a smoke ventilation and natural ventilation system that offered automatic window opening via the BMS (Building Management System.)

SE Controls provided a series of 300mm SELA G linear actuators, linked to the company’s highly versatile OSO control system. The system communicates with the BMS to automatically open windows, regulating natural air movement and providing ultra efficient smoke extraction.
