196 Deansgate, Manchester

AET Flexible Space

Five floors of grade A office space in the centre of Manchester. The refurbishment required a fundamental rethink to transform the building in decline, into a modern sought after commercial space. A new services strategy, using raised access floors and underfloor air distribution allowed the ceilings to be exposed and specific architectural features to be retained, whilst maintaining recommended floor to ceiling heights over the five floors.
20 Cannon Street, London

20 Cannon Street, London

AET Flexible Space

The building was extensively redeveloped, stripped back to its original 1960’s shell and core, and re-cladded with floor to ceiling glazing. By incorporating underfloor air conditioning, instead of more traditional ceiling based systems, a floor to ceiling height of 2500 mm within an overall slab to soffit zone of 2800 mm was achieved. The completed refurbishment created 40,000 sq ft of high specification office space which was fully let to a single occupier prior to practical completion.
20 Red Lion Street, London

20 Red Lion Street, London

AET Flexible Space

Completed in December 2020, this redevelopment of an existing five-storey 1950’s office building in the heart of Holborn, includes a single-storey extension to the roof, an extension to the office plate to the rear by 3.5m, and an extensive internal reconfiguration. These renovations have created an additional 8000 sq. ft. of net internal area. For the 20 Red Lion Street redevelopment, there was a strong emphasis on creating, light, airy, and flexible office space. Using AET Flexible Space’s underfloor air conditioning system has allowed the project team to maximise floor to ceiling heights, natural light, and the adaptability of the office space. Working closely with M&E consultants, The GDM Partnership, AET’s CAM-C (floor supply, low level return) underfloor air conditioning system was specified to serve the newly built sixth floor. To ensure floor to ceiling heights were maximised a 200mm high raised access floor was installed within which AET’s unique TU350 slim line Fantiles™ were installed. Due to the proximity of the CAM unit to the exterior of the building, a perimeter return air path was used to maximise the supply air path. The sixth floor is glazed on three sides, meaning that solar gain was high, and that maximum air supply was needed to effectively regulate the temperature of the space. The C-35 Conditioned Air Module (CAM) is fed by an externally located, high efficiency heat pump which enables it to produce cool and warm air as and when required. The floor void is divided into supply and return air channels. Conditioned air is introduced into the space by the, floor recessed, Fantile™ units with spent, room air, drawn back to the CAM unit via passive, return grilles, which are also installed within the raised access floor. Fresh air is ducted into the return air path from a centralised air handling unit where it mixes with the room air, filtered and reconditioned helping the system to achieve high standards of indoor air quality. The newly built sections, including the bright and airy sixth floor office space, at 20 Red Lion Street has received an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.

20 Soho Square, London

20 Soho Square, London

AET Flexible Space

Neo-classical building with a stunning Portland stone façade and colonnade. The underfloor system features on seven floors of the eight-storey building. The system is a CAM-C Direct Expansion system with supply and return air distributed via the floor plenum. The Fantiles are standard TU4 fan terminals with EC motors. Instead of a rooftop chiller providing chilled water, the building uses heat pump units to maximise use of space and energy efficiency. The project was delivered as a ‘Shell and Floor’ development to allow the incoming tenant to complete the fit out works to their own requirements.
24 St James Square, London

24 St James Square, London

AET Flexible Space

AET Flexible Space was specified to supply its innovative CAM-V underfloor air conditioning (UfAC) system for the refurbishment of 24 St James’s Square, completed in early 2020. The design brief was to maximise floor-to-ceiling heights and enhance the double aspect interior. One of the key challenges was the need to preserve key architectural features, whilst at the same time providing, flexible, modern, premium office space. These needs could not have been met using a conventional overhead system, which would have taken up valuable headroom and created awkward junctions where window heads met suspended ceiling grids or exposed services. Using an underfloor air conditioning system enabled the architects, BLDA, to eliminate ceiling-based services allowing for a plasterboard ceiling to be installed tight against the soffit and down stand beams. Thanks to the AET system, key architectural elements of the building were preserved, as well as increasing natural light levels and enhancing the striking double-aspect interior. “The AET downflow units promptly stood out as the obvious candidate for several reasons, including having the absolute minimum requirement for floor void height, and offering excellent distribution of cooling, heating and ventilation evenly across the whole floor whilst reducing energy consumption.” – M&E Consultant, Vic Holloway (Edward Pearce LLP). AET’s UfAC system’s make use of the space beneath a raised access floor to create a ventilation path, eliminating the need for ceiling-based mechanical services helping to maximising the floor to ceiling heights creating a brighter and more and airy office environment. A mix of CAM-V22 & 33 units were installed across the eight floors of office space. Roof mounted high efficiency heat pump units serve the refrigerant coils in each CAM’s. Conditioned air is delivered into the space via AET’s market leading TU350 slimline Fantile™ units which sit 160mm within the floor void. To avoid unwanted grilles at high-level AET designed bespoke floor extract grilles that look identical to a Fantile™ units, to allow room air to be extracted directly from the floor void enabling the interior aesthetic to remain consistent and simplify duct routes within the buildings core. Common complaints from staff, prior to the refurbishment, were variations in temperature across the office space, high level cold draughts and a lack of natural daylight light. An UfAC solution however, provides greater individual control of localised temperature, unobtrusive movement of air and makes for a more comfortable, brighter working environment. The 24 St James’s Square project has already won the “Best Office Architecture London” award at the 2019 International Property Awards and has now very recently been awarded ‘Retrofit Project of the Year’ at the H&V News Awards 2020. The building is being let as Grade A office space by BNP Paribas Real Estate who advised the developer, Misland Capital, to consider AET’s system’s based on their positive experience with 28 Saville Row which AET completed in 2014.

AET Flexible Space

This dramatic refurbishment, designed by Buckley Gray Yeoman architects on behalf of Kajima Properties, provides stylish, high quality office space in the heart of London, directly overlooking Coleman Street Gardens and less than a minute’s walk from the new Elizabeth Line station at Moorgate. AET Flexible Space worked closely with M&E consultant, The GDM Partnership, and Architects Buckley Gray Yeoman for well over three years on the application and specification of their market-leading under floor air conditioning systems before receiving the official order from the appointed M&E Contractor, Designer Group. AET was invited to present directly to the Kajima Properties development team and Property Managers, to reaffirm that their UfAC systems would deliver to the high standards set out for Kajima’s first venture into the London property market. The Kajima team were incredibly impressed by the capabilities of the AET system, and green-lighted its use on floors 1 to 7 of 77 Coleman Street. AET’s strong working relationships with both The GDM Partnership and Buckley Gray Yeoman were instrumental in defining the specification of their CAM-V system. The AET system offered an outstanding level of design freedom not achieved with ceiling-based systems. As a result of hiding the building mechanical services air within the existing 270mm floor void, key architectural design features such as the unique terrazzo-patterned soffit, could be preserved and highlighted to full effect within the interior aesthetic. The AET UfAC system has also been instrumental in gaining unusually high floor to ceiling heights, creating a far brighter, more open, and inviting office environment. Finally, the modular design and installation of the AET system offers prospective tenants a truly adaptable and flexible air conditioning solution, significantly reducing CAT-B fit out timescales and costs. Upon competition, AET’s CAM-V air conditioning system will have been installed on floors 1 to 7, utilising high-efficiency, roof-mounted heat pump units. Each floor is served by 4 CAM units, and conditioned air is fed into the space via 48 floor-recessed TU4 Fantile™ fan terminal units. AET’s unique Fantile™ units work to eliminate cold drafts for high level, as well as providing superior end user comfort and control. Completion of this building is expected in early summer 2020.

Blackheath High School, London

Blackheath High School, London

AET Flexible Space

Blackheath High School, an independent day school for girls and part of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) network, recently invested £18 million to provide new state of the art facilities including a new library and resource centre. The project involved the design and construction of a three storey new build, aesthetically designed to blend with the existing Victorian structure.  The library and resource centre are located in the lower ground floor, sunk beneath the existing site and the new courtyard area. Air conditioning was required for the underground resource centre and an underfloor system was specified so that the ceiling space, featuring the unique pyramidal skylights, could be left exposed.  A single CAM-V33 Direct Expansion downflow unit serves the air conditioned zone and conditioned air is supplied into the space by 14 TU4 Fantiles.  The CAM-V receives spent air back for re-conditioning via high level transfer grilles.  A major challenge with this project was the 900mm high underfloor void within the main resource area, requiring special modification to the CAM baseframe and raised floor substructure.
