The highly visible air-conditioning and ventilation system in this new central-London meeting and conference venue is part of the transformation of Garfield House on Edgware Road. Operated by Venues, there are 22 meeting spaces of varying sizes across the three floors — plus breakout and coffee areas.

Specialist installer and Mitsubishi Electric business solutions partner Cool Systems was called in to install the systems.

CS Group technical design engineer Martin Lazovy explained, ‘The brief was to ensure all services were exposed in line with the contemporary design the client was going for, which meant using exposed ducted fan-cool units on the ceilings of each floor.’

Each floor has Mitsubishi Electric Lossnay units to provide mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and City Multi R2 heat-recovery air conditioning using R410A.

The building’s server rooms, pantry and kitchen spaces have smaller split-system air-conditioning units.

A total of 21 Lossnay units of varying sizes were installed.

The system at Garfield House all feeds into an AG150 centralised controller, which can also interlock with the Lossnay ventilation system.

The touchscreen control panel can control up to 50 devices. It has the functionality to monitor energy use, set daily timers and instigate night setback. Upper and lower setpoints can be established, and refrigerant volumes checked via the interface.

Remote control is also provided by panels in the various rooms.

The entire installation can be linked to Mitsubishi’s forthcoming remote management interface, which will enable monitoring and control from iPhones and other smart devices.
