The Paragon office building, close to Bristol's St Nicholas market, has been granted a BREEAM 'excellent' rating. Air conditioned throughout by Ability Projects Matrix I EC/DC fan coil units, the £35m development feat
Air conditioned throughout by Ability Projects Matrix I EC/DC fan coil units, the £35m development features the high level of insulation and air tightness required by BREEAM.
Air conditioning is supplied to the office floors by 94 concealed ceiling cassette, 4 pipe MATRIX I EC/DC fan coil units with maximum nominal cooling and heating capacities of 5.06kW, operating at NR34 noise rating at 30pa resistance.
The Matrix fan coil system provides infinitely variable speed control of the fan coil unit as well as each fan within it, enabling each air duct to be balanced for air volume through fan speed alone, removing the need for volume control dampers.
Matrix I fan coils are designed to adjust the overall air volume according to room occupancy, thermal demand or a combination of the two.
