Challenge

TROX UK completed a £450,000 project at London Heathrow Terminal 5 in conjunction with SPIE Matthew Halls newly formed Southern Central and Airports Division.

The task was to supply exposed and recessed multi-service chilled beams (MSCBs) for the designated VIP lounges in the British Airways Galleries. The areas had to be air conditioned to the highest possible standards.

TROX won this important contract partly because it had already successfully supplied chilled beams to T5B - the 442m second terminal building which has 17 departure gates, shops, restaurants and a premier lounge. The company also has an excellent working relationship with WSP and project manager MACE.

Solution

TROX's specially designed beams included architectural cladding which integrated into the ceiling structure. The recessed MSCBs incorporated a variety of lighting types and TROX collaborated with the lighting consultant to meet the clients demanding requirements.

As well as supplying the air and water MSCB systems (which represented around 70 per cent of the product mix), TROX also supplied fan coils and grilles.

TROX also worked closely with the consultant WSP and architect YRM on a series of iterations before the final design was settled on. The MSCBs were prefabricated at TROXs factory in Thetford, Norfolk.

The beams were mocked up and tested at TROXs laboratories under the supervision of the services contractor SPIE Matthew Hall. Tests were witnessed by the consultant WSP, architect YRM and project manager MACE.
