Context

AET Flexible Space have just completed a full upgrade of the underfloor air conditioning system on the first floor of 16-18 Kirby Street, occupied by creative agency Fold7. The 26,000 sq. ft., 1960’s post war building was fully refurbished in 2006, enlarged and remodelled by Architect, Buckley Gray Yeoman, with underfloor air conditioning and raised access flooring installed throughout the seven floors.

The existing system at Kirby Street is a CAM-C system with underfloor supply air and underfloor return air. The first floor is split into two zones, with each zone served with a CAM-C35 downflow unit supplying conditioned air to the underfloor plenum. This conditioned air is supplied into the workspace via fan terminal units, known as Fantiles, which are recessed into the plenum beneath the raised access floor. Underfloor air conditioning systems are inherently flexible and easily reconfigured according to changing demands of the space.

Work undertaken

The recent upgrade at Kirby Street was specifically for the 1st floor area, occupied by established creative agency, Fold7. The existing CAM-C downflow units were retained, but the original AC fans were changed out for new high efficiency EC fans for enhanced performance. Existing Fantiles were cleaned and relocated, with an additional twelve units supplied to cater for increased cooling loads anticipated by the client as a result of the space reconfiguration.

The mixed workspace features open plan areas, modular meeting pods, a formal meeting room, soft meeting/lounge room and kitchen facilities, and is used by Fold7 and creative industry freelancers.

As well as the core equipment upgrade, the client opted for new sound attenuator boxes to be installed beneath the Fantiles to minimise noise transfer between the workspace, fan booster modules to enhance fresh air provision and ten FlexTouch wall controllers were fitted to permit easy control of Fantile temperature and fan speed as well as CO2 monitoring. New for old Nesite raised access flooring was also supplied including 40 m2 bespoke covering, Grey Oak Istoria Parquet, for the soft meeting/lounge area within the space.

AET worked directly for the landlord, Grosvenor Securities on the fit-out works, which were completed in May 2018.

Outcome

The end result is an adaptable, collaborative space suited to the creative community in the Camden area of London.
