This project involved the installation of mechanical and electrical services to a new build property on Avenue Road, London. Due to the historic nature of other properties on the street, it was essential that the work was carried out with the greatest of care. This was particularly important where the work impacted the fabric or structural integrity of the building.
The new building consisted of sub-basement, basement, lower ground, ground, first and second floors. The project also included a new mews house with ground and first floors at the rear of the garden. The properties were linked with an underground tunnel.
The works included:
We were involved early in the design process and helped develop the air-conditioning and ventilation design co-ordination; essential given the careful finish that this project required.
We installed a packaged air-cooled VRF condenser unit in a sunken plant area, within an acoustic enclosure. The mounted internal fan-coil units needed to be sympathetically incorporated into the new architectural finish, together with supply and return diffusers. Integrating grilles and diffusers into the architectural finishes also required careful drawing and planning of individual plenum arrangements.
As well as the importance of the finish, the design of the building meant there was limited space in which to route the services. We worked closely with the architectural design team to resolve this. By working to very tight tolerances in the ceiling voids we were able to maximise ceiling heights throughout the property.
