Fastlane supplies air handling for Travelodge

Fastlane, AHU, maintenance, refurbishment

The refurbishment of the top four storeys of a Grade 2 listed building on Edinburgh’s Princes Street into a Travelodge includes energy-recovery equipment supplied by Fastlane Ventilation. The former stockroom area above the Topshop store has been converted into a 96-room hotel, with some rooms having floor-to-ceiling windows giving spectacular, unhindered views of Edinburgh.

The hotel project represents a £10 million investment. Mechanical-services fit-out was undertaken by building-services support specialist Arthur McKay.

The bespoke Stratus heat-recovery double-decked unit for this project offers a cost-effective fast-build alternative to units with welded-steel frames, principally designed for internal mounting arrangements where space is at a premium. Units have side access doors for easy fan and filter maintenance. There are 12 standard and bespoke model sizes delivering up to 5.8 m3/s. Units are constructed from Fastlane’s Pentapost aluminium framework.

Components for this project included belt-driven forward-curved centrifugal fans, G4 panel filters and LPHW frost coil and reheat coil

All of the bespoke range can be fitted with direct-driven backward-curved plug fans and EC fans to comply with Part L of the Building Regulations.
