Trox chosen for Paradise project

Trox has been selected by BAM Construction to supply PWX fan coils for the second building at Paradise, Birmingham - Two Chamberlain Square. The 183,000 sq ft office building, the vision of Glenn Howells Architects, will join the first building in offering a cumulative 350,000 sq ft of Grade 1 office space as part of the Paradise masterplan.

The Trox PWX fan coil range was selected for the air conditioning system because comfort of building occupants and energy efficiency are key priorities. When developing the PWX range, Trox put the new fan coils through thorough in-house testing, using their in-house test chamber (constructed to comply with ASHRAE 79, BS1397 and EUROVENT 6/3), in addition to extensive corroboration of results at an independent test facility.

The accuracy of performance means that specification is easier and faster, and reduces installation costs as well as offering environmental benefits.
