Smoke Ventilation system helps gain award

24 May 2010

News article image for Smoke Ventilation system helps gain award
SE Controls has designed and supplied a smoke ventilation system for the Royal Apartments redevelopment of the former Invesco Perpetual Offices in Henley, which has recently received a highly commended award for best new conversion by the Evening Standards awards.

As the building layout and corridor travel lengths to the escape stairs exceeded the recommendations of Approved Document B, a fire engineered solution was CFD modelled to aid in the means of escape strategy and fire fighting operations

The smoke ventilation system was also utilised to cool the common corridor, due to the hot water distribution running through the corridors to the apartments. The automatic opening vents would open when the temperature within the corridors and lobbies reached a certain level to reduce the increased temperatures.
