Products used CAM-V underfloor supply air and high level return air system
 
 

Context

Underfloor air conditioning was specified for the £16.5 million new-build development at the University of Essex’s Colchester campus; the largest new building on campus since 1965 which provides 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 wanted a flexible system which would satisfy both high and transient occupancy levels and adapt to future change of use within the space.

Product supplied

AET supplied a CAM-V underfloor supply air and high level return air conditioning system covering an area of 6,200m2. The project was the first to install the TU4-EC fantile, the standard fan terminal unit with the addition of EC fan technology for improved energy efficiency. It also made use of the new Flexgateway for Modbus BMS system for improved control and communications.

The project had a sustainability target of BREEAM Very Good.
