25 years of loving construction: Holland House, Cardiff

Project title: Holland House

Location: Cardiff City Centre

Client: McCann and Partners

Service: Pressurisation system

Project Background

This project entailed converting a 20-storey office block into a luxury hotel. Designing in the 60’s, the building only contained a single staircase, meaning there were obstacles to overcome on the fire safety side.

The Project

The Client
McCann and Partners specialise in providing a full range of building services associated with Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health Engineering Systems
Our Involvement
Group SCS had been brought on board by McCann and Partners to design a staircase pressurisation system to protect the escape routes.

Our solution

A class B pressurisation system was designed featuring 22kW run and standby fans located at ground floor level with a natural air release shaft in the lobbies to permit the 2m/s open door velocity for fire fighting protection. The system was commissioned during the night to prevent disturbance to airflows.
