Fastlane helps Fitness First save energy for ventilation

Fastlane Ventilation Equipment
One of the first sites of Fitness First to install heat-recovery ventilation is on Baker Street in London, using Fastlane equipment

Energy-efficient ventilation for Fitness First at Baker Street in London is provided by heat-recovery units supplied by Fastlane Ventilation Equipment. The units enable heat from the shower areas to be recovered and used in other areas of the building. Fastlane worked with distributor Air Conditioning Suppliers and H&V contractor TBS to design a system specifically to meet the needs of the club, supplying eight bespoke units.

With access to the site being difficult the units were first built and then taken apart for delivery to the site in sections. Peter Smith, senior contracts engineer with TBS, explains, ‘Many of the buildings we work with are awkward in terms of physically getting the plant equipment in, but Baker Street proved particularly challenging. We worked with Fastlane [part of the Elta Group] to come up with a solution which required the heat-recovery unit which recovers waste heat from the exhaust gases to be dismantled so that the constituent parts could be taken into the building, where it was reassembled.’
