Integrated Service Modules (ISMs) featuring both active chilled beams and Micro Prism Optic (MPO) luminaires were installed as part of an iconic refurbishment and extension project at 10 Hills Place, Oxford Street, London.
Leading architectural and design practice, Amanda Levete Architects, specified over 200 metres of SAS International’s ISMs for the recently completed project.
Ho-Yin Ng, Director at Amanda Levete Architects comments: “Bespoke integrated chilled beams which combined the electrical and mechanical systems of the cooling, ventilation and lighting were designed and developed with SAS into a slim line aerodynamic profile. This matched the aesthetic of the building, whilst maximising headroom and areas of the soffit, leading to an increased sense of space.”
Supplied and installed by SAS Project Management, the energy-efficient active ISMs were able to match the modern architectural aesthetics, while achieving correct environmental comfort and illuminance (lux) levels. The ISMs generate minimal air movement and noise, thus providing a flexible solution increasing the comfort and well being of occupants. The active chilled beams provide 470 W/m of cooling and 370 W/m of heating to the internal envelope.
