Requirement

The Laser House redevelopment, due for completion in 2021, will convert two historic Clerkenwell buildings, a former gin distillery and bank headquarters, into a new art-led creative hub.

The original buildings will be retained and seamlessly stitched together with a new ‘infill’ building. Two new floors will then be developed above, completing a juxtaposition of ‘old’ and ‘new’.

Air conditioning was required for the building’s 5,000m2 of office space set over 5 floors.

Solution

AET worked with M&E consultants Chapman BDSP who understood the application of AET’s UfAC systems and were aware of the numerous benefits they would bring. This close working relationship helped AET and Chapman BDSP devise the optimal system layout for the project.

Underfloor air-conditioning

25 CAM-C units will provide air conditioning to the building’s 5,000m2 of office space set over 5 floors.

The conditioned air will then be induced into the office space by AET’s unique TU4 (EC) Fantile™ fan terminal units. These Fantile™ units are installed within the raised access floor, and thanks to their modular design can be reconfigured within minutes, making them an adaptable, fit-out friendly air conditioning solution.

The AET underfloor air conditioning system, totally concealed within the raised-access floor, has given the architects far greater design freedom when it comes to the internal aesthetics of the building. 

Sustainability

The new extension, being built to link the two historical buildings, will be constructed wholly out of crosslaminated timber, which will release at least 50% less carbon than if concrete had been used.

AET’s excellent energy credentials and the reduced volume of building materials required for an underfloor system contribute to the project’s sustainable design. In addition, the system’s inherent flexibility will help to limit the buildings “churn rate”, further boosting its sustainable credentials, as well as reducing a new occupant’s fit out timeframes and costs.

Outcome

On completion in 2021, the fully refurbished development will offer 74,000 sq. ft of best-in-class, modern workspace and retail areas.
