The Project

The Client
Group SCS was awarded the contract by Imtech Meica, who were working for developer Westfield.
Our Involvement
It was a race against time for the Group SCS when the company was contracted to provide the smoke control systems at the new Westfield London shopping centre.

Our Solution

In just three weeks, 22 uniVent smoke shaft systems were installed into the building’s stair cores, ensuring that the centre could open on time and that millions of customers were safe in the knowledge they would be shopping in safety. The UniVent range is proving increasingly popular with developers attracted to fast, simple and cost effective solutions. It is a complete solution for protected lobby ventilation, containing all component parts and controls. The modular system employs natural smoke ventilation methods to clear smoke ventilation methods to clear smoke from common escape routes and enable people to exit buildings safely in the event of a fire.
