Initial Brief

As part of an extensive redevelopment designed by MoreySmith, Film House is transitioning from office space to a beautiful new hotel.

Sertus were approached by Flatt Consulting to provide design and advice for the mechanical smoke ventilation system which is protecting Film House's firefighting core.

Challenges

The iconic central-Soho location and the building's close proximity to residents meant that the mechanical smoke extract fan had to achieve an extremely high acoustic performance. To deliver this Sertus sourced a bespoke high-performance attenuator and redesigned the Roof Mechanical Pod to ensure that the acoustic requirements were exceeded.

Outcome

This project is still ongoing.
