CASE STUDY

Greenbank Student Village – Natural smoke ventilation systems for student accommodation blocks

Project

Greenbank Student Village was a development scheme by the University of Liverpool. The new build accommodation has created 1,370 bedrooms for University students.

The redevelopment saw six buildings replaced by three new student accommodation blocks; Derby Hall, Rathbone Hall and Gladstone Hall.

Phase One

Dyer were initially asked to supply and install chain drives as part of a natural ventilation system. This was successfully achieved by the use of CDC 200/350 chain drives, operated by 3-position natural ventilation switches. The drives operate quietly and are barely visible. Dyer also installed 12 sets of KA drives ranging from 600-1300mm stroke lengths.

Phase Two

Dyer supplied 21 EN12101-2 NSHEVs to the window contractor to fit into the curtain walling, allowing Dyer to issue certification. The aluminium bottom-hung open out windows are operated by KA 54/1000 BSY+ sets, one pair per vent. This provides a free area of 1.5m2 as regulation Approved Document B.

Certification

To allow Dyer to issue certification, the drives and window profile have been tested as a complete unit.
Dyer are certified with many window profile systems, on this occasion Reynaers profiles were the preferred option.

Mechanical smoke ventilation uses fans to extract smoke laden air and replaces it with clean fresh air via windows and roof vents. Dyer provide excellent service when supplying, installing and commissioning these systems. Details can be found here - https://t.co/PaowobLNdi https://t.co/DHavZo1nLp
