Air Handling Units in new basement plantroom

A mechanical ventilation system controls the environment to provide appropriate conditions for conservation. Ventilation ductwork has been arranged in vertical routes between the existing timber joists being retained and left exposed. Every duct leaving the new sub-basement plantroom has been coordinated to rise vertically to a supply diffuser.

To reduce the visually intrusive nature of conventional ventilation grille products, special diffusers were designed in the space between the timber joists.
