Energy-efficient Integrated Service Modules (ISMs) featuring both active chilled beams and Micro Prism Optic (MPO) luminaires were installed as part of a significant refurbishment project at Places for People’s headquarters in central London. SAS International worked closely with designers Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects on the 1,700 square metre project.
The ISMs featured are both truly innovative and visually striking and marks the first major UK project that combines active chilled beams with MPO technology.
Specified by Fulcrum Consulting, the ISMs which feature throughout the three-storey building, have been positioned above desks and meeting room tables to match the architectural aesthetics and achieve correct environmental comfort and illuminance (lux) levels. The MPO luminaries are linked to a DALI lighting system and a combination of passive infra-red absence detection and daylight sensors ensure lighting energy consumption is kept to a minimum.
