Context

TROX UK supplied a range of air handling products for the UBS headquarters in London. The new building houses up to 6,000 people and features four immense trading floors in 700,000sq ft of Grade "A" office space and has been described as one of the most sustainable office buildings of all time.

Sustainable features of the building include "the second biggest array of photovoltaic cells and solar thermal panels in the City of London, a substantial area of green roof, 70 percent waste recycling,FSC-certified timber, and a BREEAM “Excellent” rating.

Products supplied

Multi Service Chilled Beams (MSCB ) were based around the active DID312 chilled beam.

The MSCBs included a range of incorporated services including:

  • Luminaires
  • Sprinklers
  • Smoke detectors
  • PIR sensors
  • Emergency lighting
  • Temperature and condensatesensors

In addition a range of grilles and diffusers, slot diffusers, ventilatino grilles, floor grilles, Air Flow systems and VAV fan boxes / VAV terminal  units were supplied for the project.

To support the development of a MSCB which met the end client's needs the project team regularly reviewed the development of the test mock-up at TROX's Thetford laboratories where the MSCB design was verified ahead of manufacture. Due to the incorporation of the services in the beam the result is a clean vaulted ceiling and an office space beautifully lit by long lengths of chilled beams.
