Over 4,500 linear metres of "Radiant"/convective passive multiservice chilled beams (MSCBâ€™s) have been supplied and installed by Frenger Systems on the refurbishment of Birmingham City Council's HQ building in the heart of Birmingham. The unique benefits of the passive "Radiant"/convective cooling element in delivering high cooling duties (in excess of 100 W/m2) with significantly reduced air velocities when compared to traditional passive chilled beams.
The project provided additional challenges because the building was occupied and therefore works needed to be carefully co-ordinated with the Client. The transformation of the original "dreary" office space into a modern and pleasant environment has been universally appreciated and is a testament to the well-designed application of radiant/convective passive multiservice beam technology.
This provides a typical example where "Radiant"/convective passive chilled beam technology has been utilised to deliver high cooling duties with minimal air movement within the occupied zone when compared to traditional passive chilled beams.
