Commercial case studies
OXYGEN in the commercial sector
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) doesn’t just effect the behaviour and performance of students, it can effect an office team too. Below are some examples of how OXYGEN has been put to work in commercial buildings across the UK.
Victoria & Albert Museum
Attracting over 3 million visitors per year, the museum faces continuous challenges in providing a comfortable environment for people to peruse its vast collection.
One such challenge was installing a new heating and ventilating system across the entire sixth floor. While ensuring the visitor experience is satisfactory from a comfort perspective, as well as something that would not violate any building restrictions.
The main challenge with the project was to fit modern day, energy efficient heating and ventilation into a Grade 1 list building. In identifying a tailored solution that adhered to the various unique requirements the projects building services consultants, Norman Disney & Young, selected Jaga as the best positioned provider to fulfil the needs of the project.
Leeds Grand Theatre & Opera House
One of the oldest buildings in West Yorkshire, the theatre underwent a 31.5 £million refurbishment. Phase two of the project involved the installation of a new heating system in the rehearsal rooms. As the rooms are relatively small, when groups of people had previously been rehearsing, CO2 levels built up quickly creating an uncomfortable humid feeling. Jaga Oxygen was specified to simultaneously ventilate, heat and monitor air quality in these rooms.
As well as almost silent operation, the design of the Oxygen solution was an important factor too. The Strada radiators specified for the project are not only attractive and compact but also feature Jaga’s innovative low-H2O technology, which typically reduces energy consumption by 10-15%.
Stevenage Borough Council
As part of a £400,000 refurbishment, Stevenage Borough Council installed OXYGEN to provide its offices with both energy efficient heat and ventilation. The Council previously found that poor indoor air quality was creating a humid and uncomfortable atmosphere, as well as causing drowsiness and inattentiveness among staff.
The building previously used under-floor heating as its main source of heating however this proved to be a costly system.
An OXYGEN solution was specified using Strada radiators to deliver optimum levels of heat during winter months whilst also providing good ventilation with maximum comfort year round.
