Frenger are proud to have been chosen for the design, supply and installation of over 4,500 linear metres of passive multiservice chilled beams to the refurbishment of Birmingham City Council´s HQ building in the heart of Birmingham. The Company was able to demonstrate to the Design Team the unique benefits of the 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 presents additional challenges because the building is occupied and therefore works need to be carefully co-ordinated with the Client. Frenger have to date supplied and installed the first phase of this multi million pound order value to Frenger - floor levels four and five - and work on the remaining 3 floors are scheduled for completion by mid 2010. 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 Frenger's passive multiservice beam technology.
