specifications

The project is designed to achieve BREEAM Excellent certification level.

Access Control

Access control system HID with proximity readers installed at all vehicular and pedestrian entry and exit points.

Acoustic Rating

The design intent for the general office space is to achieve a range of 35 – 45 dB(A).

Building Fabric

The external elevations comprise top quality and highly efficient curtain and modular walling. The curtain walling is double glazed with dual seal construction with the outer pane manufactured to repeal solar gains.

Building Management System

A fully automated intelligent Building Management System (BMS) will switch, control and monitor the building’s environmental services and associated back-up systems.

CCTV

The buildings will be equipped with intrusion detection and CCTV system.

Clear Floor Heights

The clear height from finished floor surface to the underside of the suspended ceiling will be not less than 2.75m in the office areas on upper floors.

Ceiling Finishes

Suspended tegular mineral fibre ceiling tiles or ‘semi-open’ ceilings can also be provided in office areas.

Heating & Cooling

Independent air handling units will provide ventilation and cooled or heated air to all office areas and café/canteen. The provision of cooling and heating to the buildings will be via a four

pipe fan coil system allowing all year-round cooling if required, served from high efficiency condensing boilers and high efficiency screw chillers paired with closed loop cooling towers. Tenant IT rooms will be serviced by landlord supplied dedicated central cooling systems providing 10 kW cooling output per tenant. There is back-up power from dedicated Tenant’s generator. The building’s carbon dioxide emissions and running costs for the entire cooling system will be significantly below market norms.

External lighting

The surrounding external LED lighting makes the location welcoming and safe, day and night.

Fire detection alarm system

There is a fully addressable fire detection system. The fire alarm systems will be integrated into the building management systems to provide alarm signals for plant shutdown and life safety activation.

Floor loading

Floors – 2,5 kN/m² plus an allowance of 0,5 kN/m² for partitions.

Lifts

For each building, one of the lifts will have a dual purpose of passenger and goods lift, and will be accessible from the loading bay of each building, at basement level. The destination control system brings the nearest lift to the person and saves waiting time and electricity.

Lighting design

High efficiency LED light fittings will be in all office space and parking areas to provide a very economical lighting system. Motion detection control is used in areas which are temporarily occupied such as parking, staircases and toilets to give further energy savings.

Lighting levels

Intelligent lighting.
General offices 450-550 lux
Lift lobbies 200 lux
Toilets/ staircases 200 lux
Car park 75 lux @ floor level
with energy saving sensors.

Partitioning

Perimeter columns and window mullions will generally provide facilities for accepting internal partitions at 1500/3000mm centres, to allow partitioned offices of 3.0 and 4.5m widths.

Raised floors

Raised, full access floors, with 150 mm void in all office floors.

Tenant back-up power generator

Space is provided and allowance is made for future adaptation within the underground and ground floors to accommodate tenants' back up generators.

Tenant power supply & distribution

The Tenant will be provided with clearly defined and sub-metered power connections. Main LV panels have multi-meters (with remote BMS connection) in accordance with local metering codes and norms and with local distribution company procedures. Metering of the building allows for distinct measurement of normal or emergency power supply per floor.

WC & shower facilities

All WC cubicle partitions to be constructed from blockwork, plasterboard or WC cubicle system with ceramic tile finishing or coloured panelling. Automatic hand-dryers will be provided or optionally surface mounted paper hand towel and soap dispensers or combination of both.

Disabled provision

All statutory regulations governing the design of office buildings for the use by disabled persons are met. Disabled WCs are provided at each level next to the toilet core, including a shower.

BREEAM rating

The project is designed to achieve BREEAM Excellent certification level.
