Natural and smoke ventilation at Newton House

Natural and smoke ventilation at Newton House

Dyer Environmental Controls Ltd

Newton House is a brand new Housing 21 Extra Care Living development in Penrith. It promotes independent living for people over the age of 55, with access to on-site care. The development offers 54 one and two bedroom apartments.Newton House provides fully accessible facilities for residents and visitors. These include a restaurant, hair salon, residents’ lounge, activity room and communal gardens.For the natural smoke ventilation system at Newton House, Dyer provided roof vents, dampers and louvres, and supplied and installed the controls in order to ventilate the communal areas.Three staircases are ventilated by certified smoke vent rooflights, each fitted with a KA 54 chain drive. Each of the three internal corridors are ventilated via smoke shafts with smoke dampers and grilles (with concealed drives) at each corridor level and a rooflight at the head of the shaft.Dual colour aluminium double glazed louvres each fitted with a single LDF louvre drive, ventilate the six corridors.All staircase roof vents and louvres are CE marked and tested to EN 12101-2. The shaft dampers are CE marked and tested to EN 12101-8.Dyer supplied and installed a multizone smoke ventilation control panel with 72 hour battery back up, with one breakglass reset switch for each zone. The control panel will receive signals from the fire alarm to individually trigger each zone. When a corridor zone is triggered, the vent at the head of the adjacent staircase will open. If a smoke shaft inlet vent is triggered, all remaining vents will be locked in the closed position to prevent spread of heat and smoke between floors.The end of corridor louvres can be used for natural day-to-day ventilation when required. Each has a switch located nearby, when pressed, will open the louvres to 25%, allowing fresh air to enter the corridors.

Farmhouse with ground source heat pump and ThermaSkirt

Farmhouse with ground source heat pump and ThermaSkirt

Discrete Heat

“We decided early on to go with a Ground Source heat pump as we have plenty of land to lay the heat collector pipes, and as we were insulating to the latest standards, and having tiled floors, we opted to go underfloor heating downstairs. However, we were advised against UFH upstairs as we liked wood or carpet in the bedrooms”. For a while it seemed that oversized or fan assisted radiators to adequately heat the rooms at the lower flow temperature of a heat pump were Simons’ only options. But Simon was not a big fan of radiators,

Mechanical smoke ventilation at Local Blackfriars

Dyer Environmental Controls Ltd

Local Blackfriars is a gated community in Salford, providing 380 apartments. A unique aspect of the residential scheme is the Grade II listed Black Friar pub merged into the development.Dyer were asked to supply and install mechanical smoke ventilation systems for the apartment blocks and the underground car parks. Dyer worked closely with Fire Design Solutions and Domis Construction over the course of the project to provide a successful outcome.When a floor goes into fire, the dampers in both shafts on the affected floor open. The chain drive on the AOV window on the affected floor opens to provide fresh inlet air. The vent at the head of the stairwell will also open. Both sets of fans work to extract the smoke and poisonous gases.On activation of a thermostat on a single floor, both the dampers on the affected floor will open. One set of fans will extract on trickle mode and the other shaft will provide fresh inlet air for the system. The vent at the head of the stair will also partly open.If the rain sensor is activated this will override and close the roof vent.If more than one thermostat operates, the dampers on the affected floors will open and be balanced to provide an equal air flow on each floor.Smoke detection in any zone will override the natural ventilation system and smoke extract will take priority.Dyer provided an eco-park® mechanical ventilation system. Advanced components and control systems allows for efficient energy usage.
