District heating systems


Paul Sands of Stokvis Energy Systems reflects on the reasons social housing landlords are returning to the use of centralised heating systems. In recent years our social housing sector has ‘rediscovered’ an appetite for district heating after decades of adverse publicity and seemingly cheaper alternatives had persuaded many landlords to replace the systems. There was


no single Eureka moment but rather a steady stream of economic and technical reasons which emerged, all of which in some way pointed towards the benefits of district communal heating.

Open plan has been taken to extremes in a European Centre of Excellence, but it’s proved no obstacle for the ventilation strategy. To the M&E team’s brief, air movement specialist Gilberts developed an advanced draught- free solution to the refurbishment and refit for Uber’s European Centre of Excellence, using air movement principles more commonly employed in aircraft and Formula 1 engineering. Architects Healy & Partners designed a contemporary work space for the software house’s premises in Limerick, with the open ‘feel’ extend- ing to removing ceilings and creating symmetrical exposed services in the offices, meeting rooms and break- out areas. Consulting engineers Metsec and supplier Keane Environmental worked closely to develop a ventilation strategy that would ensure adequate airflow with a comfortable, draught-free internal environment. In response 160 of Gilberts’ circular GSFE fixed swirl diffusers, specially fitted with coanda plates, have been installed throughout the four-storey building. The diffusers’, uses radial vanes behind a perforated face to allow the introduction of high levels of air horizontally across the ceiling with rapid entrainment and intermixing.
