AJ SPECIFICATION - PRODUCTS IN PRACTICE / REFURBISHMENT

BUILDING Sands End Community Centre, Fulham, London

ARCHITECT Steve Bateman, London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham

CLIENT London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham

PRODUCT Windcatcher ventilation system

CHARACTERISTICS The air-intake louvres harness the prevailing wind from any direction, carrying it down to the rooms and corridors of the refurbished community facility through a controlled damper arrangement in the ceiling. Each unit is fitted with a positioner linked to a temperature sensor, enabling each to be controlled individually.

SPECIAL PROPERTIES The natural ventilation system eliminates the need for air conditioning, has a low capital cost and zero running costs. It also offers a greater degree of security than openable windows.
