Energy-efficient heating, cooling and ventilation is provided for Newcastle Sixth Form College by Trox multi-service chilled beams.

Trox multi-service chilled beams for the £22 million Newcastle Sixth Form College deliver heating, cooling, variable-flow ventilation and lighting throughout the building. The 11 000 m2 building is the only dedicated sixth-form college in Newcastle upon Tyne and has been designed with a number of sustainability features, including a green roof.

The Trox beams are based on the DID632 air-to-water active chilled beam. They are very easy to maintain and do not require cleaning.

Trox variable-air-volume flow-rate controllers adjust output in line with changing occupancy in each room to maximise energy efficiency.
