A project led by Westminster City Council in tandem with PRP Architects and Durkan, Sertus were approached to provide the smoke ventilation system for this Care Home in Central London.
The layout of the building meant a natural system wasn't sufficient and a mechanical system was required. There was also additional queries surrounding the secondary power supply for the life safety systems.
The secondary power supply for Beachcroft House is supplied by a generator. This presented a challenge to ensure that the smoke ventilation system was compatible with the back-up generator.
The Sertus mechanical ecosystem, incorporating the Roof Mechanical Pod, provides the smoke control system and by working closely with the M&E Contractors, we ensured our solution would be compatible with the secondary power supply.
