System

***not a Swegon system, just Swegon components.

 Need

The architectural concept required a continuous linear appearance from devices suspended from the open plan ceiling. The mechanical concept was to approach net-zero performance by using the latest proven ventilation and cooling concepts, making the chilled beam system an attractive option. The architectural requirements required development of special fill-in panels and Coanda wings with performance proven in Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling.

Swegon Solution

Swegon provided PACIFIC chilled beams, custom paint finish, fill-in panels, and Coanda wings

Result

¬The architectural appearance requirement was met, and the occupants are satisfied with the resulting comfort and appearance.
