    Natural ventilation

    Génie climatique, électricité / Ventilation, rafraîchissement

    features were inserted in the design wherever possible and with an understanding of the site constraints and acoustic obligations. This was combined with a highly efficient mechanical ventilation system with exhaust air heat recovery.

    Turbo core chiller systems


    Génie climatique, électricité / Ventilation, rafraîchissement

    Ultra efficient ‘turbo core’ chiller systems using high-speed axial compressors, with the compressor turbine floating on magnetic bearings to eliminate friction in the main moving part, achieve demanding energy efficiency levels. Cooling systems built into the chillers pre-cool the chilled water from the building at low external ambient temperatures without the use of refrigeration equipment.

    Low carbon district heating network


    Génie climatique, électricité / Chauffage, eau chaude

    The building benefits from connection to the King’s Cross low carbon district heating network, including heat from a mixture of CHP, efficient gas boilers and potentially Biomass boiler systems.
