Seven of the 10 floors of Tricorn House in Birmingham are now air-conditioned using AET’s Flexible Space underfloor system.

AET Flexible Space has returned to Tricorn House on the Hagley Road in Birmingham to install underfloor air conditioning for two more floors of this iconic 12-storey building. The system was originally specified for the eighth floor in 2001. The latest work is for the seventh and ninth floors. The system is now installed on seven of the 10 office floors.

The system was originally specified to bring cooling to the inner areas of the building while maximising floor to ceiling height in a building with a restrictive 2.8 m between slabs.

The latest project included seven CAM downflow units and 110 slimline fan-terminal units with EC fan technology. The Fantile units were easily accommodated in the 175 mm-deep floor void.

The Flexible Space system uses the floor plenum as the ventilation duct, making it easy and economical to adapt to changes in office layout. Conditioned air is introduced into the space via floor-recessed fan-terminal units (Fantiles), which as easily relocated with 600 mm-square raised-floor tiles. These Fantiles have integrated controllers so that users can adjust temperatures and fan speed.

The latest system has fresh-air units to introduce fresh air at floor level of each of the three wings. The CAM downflow units are therefore handling the heating and cooling of the fresh air in winter and summer, as well as the normal solar and internal space load — thereby reducing plant space riser and maintenance requirements.
