Context

33 Glasshouse Street, London, features a Grade II listed façade and occupies a prominent position overlooking Regent Street and Soho. The building underwent a full structural reconfiguration and refurbishment, including an air conditioning fit-out on the 2nd, 3rd and 5th floors by AET Flexible Space for one of the world's leading technology companies.

Challenge

The project designers wanted to maximise headroom and natural light penetration within the restricted space and create large, open plan floor plates for the Cat-A space on floors three to seven. Perimeter heating and cooling would not have been effective and a ceiling system would have required a void that would virtually cover the low level windows.

Solution

The CAM-C direct expansion underfloor system from AET was chosen for the project. This allowed the space and natural light penetration to be maximised, with floor-to-ceiling heights of 3.3m to maximise natural light penetration through the deep floor plates.

The CAM-C direct expansion is served by external heat pumps and provides fully conditioned air via the underfloor plenum using zonal downflow units (CAM). Cool or warm air is then introduced into the workspace via TU4-EC Fantiles, or fan terminal units, which are recessed into the 300mm void.

Working for Modus Workspace, AET engineers carried out additional fit-out works for the incoming tech giant including the supply and installation of additional Fantiles, return air grilles and underfloor air baffle to cater to the proposed high-density layout and accommodate the additional cooling requirements.

The client also opted to install sound attenuator boxes beneath the grilles to minimise noise transfer between the open plan workspace and cellular meeting pods.

User control of the UfAC system is enhanced by 21 new wall-mounted Flextouch controllers, permitting easy adjustment of temperature and fan speed.

Outcome

The final result is prime, modern, adaptable office space that has attracted leading businesses and commands premium rates. The Cat-B works were completed in September 2018, ready for the incoming client.

    The CAM-C underfloor zonal air conditioning system uses the raised floor void as a plenum for the distribution and return of air. Within the floor void, flexible baffle material segregates zones into supply and return plena.
