The Shatin Industrial Centre is a multi-function building in the centre of Hong Kong. It has been designed with commercial and industrial purposes in mind. The tenant, T.H.E Design, has transformed the entire sixth floor into a co-working space for their entrepreneurial community of designers and architects.
The air conditioning solution
The AET CAM-C Direct Expansion (DX) underfloor air conditioning system was specified for the co-working space, and had a significant impact on its design. The CAM-C Direct Expansion system is ideally suited to refurbishments or buildings with space constraints, as it will maximise the use of space.
A total of eight CAM-C downflow units induce the conditioned air into underfloor supply zones. 122 Fantile Terminal Units (FTU), which are recessed into the floor, extract the conditioned air from the plenum below the raised floor and introduce it into the co-working areas. Within the floor void, an air segregation baffle divides zones into supply and return plena.
The AET Flexible Space CAM-C system gives the end-users full control and ensure comfort cooling. The Flexvisor BMS software allows for independent remote monitoring and supervision, with local access using network IP address within the co-working area. In addition, wall mountable, touchscreen remote controllers can adjust the fan speed, temperature, and measure carbon dioxide and humidity.
