In commercial settings, mechanical ventilation is driven by air handling units (AHU) connected to ductwork within the building that supplies air to and extracts air from interior spaces. Where mechanical ventilation includes heating, cooling and humidity control, this is referred to as Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
Ventilation Design & Installation
The design of mechanical ventilation systems is a specialist task, undertaken by accredited engineers. There are standards and best practices that can be used to determine air flow rates for straight-forward situations. When mechanical ventilation is combined with heating, cooling, humidity control and the interaction with natural ventilation etc., the situation can become very complicated. Taking additional factors into consideration, such as ductwork, noise generated by fans, it is fundamental that building services are considered at the start of the building design process.
Which is why our team of experienced CIBSE members, low carbon consultants, energy assessors and degree qualified engineers are capable of advising, designing and delivering expert solutions.
As CIBSE low carbon consultants we can offer BRUKL, BREEAM & EPC advice if required.
We can take design and build concepts in all building sectors and provide compliant surveys, estimates and cost effective solutions.
Our installation teams of professional, reliable and highly trained engineers will expertly install a variety of ventilation systems, to meet the exacting manufacturer specifications and ensure to meet our high standards of clean, compliant and quality installation.
We will deliver compliant DW144 duct work installations through to specialist installations, such as, fire rated duct work, smoke ventilation, fume cupboards, pharmaceuticals, textile duct solutions and specialist fabrications.
