Bonhams Auction House, New Bond Street

Working alongside Lifschutz, Davidson Sandiland (LDS) architects, Mott MacDonald, Cambridge, completed the detailed design of the M&E and Fire Engineering Services for the redevelopment of Bonhams Auction House in the heart of Mayfair, London. Situated at 101 New Bond Street, Bonhams’ new £30m headquarters replaces a rather shabby rabbit warren of buildings with a light flooded, state-of-the-art building with three immense salerooms. Temperature controls partnered with a full fresh air system delivered via bespoke Krantz IN-V linear slot diffusers incorporated into the barrel vaulted ceiling where installed alongside the latest LED lighting so ambience in each saleroom can be changed with a touch of a button. IN-V diffusers where also utilised in meeting rooms situated on the first floor, incorporating the same vaulted ceiling to ensure clean lines throughout.

Carnegie Leisure Centre

Carnegie Leisure Centre is a Grade B listed building in Dunfermline which houses three swimming pools and leisure suites concealed behind the Victorian facade. A strong emphasis on sustainability resulted in the development being connected to district waste landfill gas to provide useful heat. The Training Pool is part heated by solar panels with the supply air being served by nozzles, whilst the Gymnasium and Aerobics suites utilise displacement systems. This system allows maximum use of free cooling for the majority of the year. RSP's design also incorporated Krantz Variable Twist diffusers in the Main Pool for effective coverage of warm supply air. Alan Affleck of RSP added ‘"due to the varied and historic nature of the building, a fine balance was required to achieve air distribution performance as well as being discrete and complimentary to the buildings finishes. The use of high volume displacement diffusers along the gymnasium walls allowed the ceiling to be kept clear for the Architects feature ceiling. Slim line induction diffusers were also utilised along the roof lights to provide a non-intrusive, even and comfortable air distribution".

Sheffield City Hall

A combination of 2255 step and floor mounted diffusers were utilised for the Microclimate air supply system at Sheffield City Hall. Critical sound levels, low velocity supply to seated occupants, and low pressure loss to the common floor void where essential to the success of this project. This was achieved by using DB-E and Q-SR diffusers, as also used at the Welsh Millennium Centre and Glyndebourne Opera House. The floor mounted diffusers installed in the Stalls allowed the seats to be removed to cater for standing spectators.

Spraybake

DW-VL type swivel jet nozzles were supplied to Spraybake, the UK's leading spray booth manufacturer, for its new high-performance automotive XP series of paint spray booths. The nozzles, fitted in two banks of five, are individually ducted and programmable to allow maximum flexibility in drying and curing, as well as superior efficiency.

Charles Hurst Renault/Nissan Showrooms, Boucher Road, Belfast

Both of the above showrooms required ventilation air to be supplied from a bulkhead at one end of the showroom only, and to be distributed evenly throughout the showrooms with resulting year round comfort conditions for both customers and employees. Gary Bennett of consultants Bennett Robertson Design, Belfast, designed a system using Krantz DW-VK Jet Nozzles to achieve the required maximum throw of 24m. Installed by Litton Group, the appearance of the nozzles was required to be in keeping with the architectural requirements of the building. Architects John Neill Partnership not only approved the visual appearance of the system, but have been impressed by the nozzles capability to provide efficient coverage of the area from the single supply bulkhead, leaving the ceiling area free from ventilation ductwork.

'TATU' Bar & Grill, Belfast

TATU has recently won a prestigious All-Ireland design award for it's spectacular interior design. Not something you would normally associate with air distribution. The Krantz DW-VL jet nozzles are the architectural feature that dominate the bar area, not only providing the bar and restaurant with a conditioned draught free environment, but also giving immediate visual impact for anyone walking past the outside of the building.
