This new city centre 10 story building comprising 239 student beds with the majority of the common space is on the ground floor & on target to achieve BREEM excellent rating and generates 10% of its energy requirements
PSB UK Ltd has recently handed over this prestigious project to the Ashcourt Group incorporating two Above Ground Ventilation Systems servicing two blocks.
The above ground & corridor smoke control systems are designed to provide mechanical ventilation, from the stairwell and associated lobbies, in accordance with the requirements of The Approved Document B2 and BS9991.
The Staircore is protected from smoke contamination by the two-mechanical lobby smoke control systems, one extraction system on level 7 & one extraction system on the roof. Make up air to this system is via an automatic opening ventilator (AOV) mounted at the head of the Staircore which also serves as access / egress to the roof level.
The mechanical smoke control systems are provided with a single Master Control Panel containing the computerised control logic for the control of both systems to the agreed design, CFD & cause and effect with signals back from the fire alarm panel.
