The Project

The Client
We became involved with this project through Homevent, part of the Nuaire Group. Group SCS was originally employed on a fee basis by P+HS Architects, based in Stokesley, North Yorkshire to design the smoke control requirement for this development.
Our Involvement
Following Group SCS’s design input we were successful in obtaining the order to supply, install and commission the required extract systems starting with blocks 5, 6 & 11. Additionally we also designed, supplied and installed a combination uniJet and uniForce car park ventilation system.

Our Solution

Due to the internal layout of the common areas within the building and the travel distances exceeding the building regulations requirements, the solution was to provide mechanical extraction systems to the common access corridors. The system briefly comprised of high temperature run & standby extract fans connected to each lobby by enhanced ductwork via smoke dampers. Each lobby was provided with a dedicated smoke detector which provided the automatic operation of the extract system. As with all life safety systems, a secondary power supply is required to provide back up power in the event of mains failure. With this development it was not possible to provide a secondary mains supply, so a UPS system was provided by us to supply all of the smoke control systems.
