London Fire Stations

Addressing the risk of overheating and thermal discomfort

As part of a £57million PFI construction programme, a consortium, led by Kier and including architects BDP, are building and refurbishing nine existing fire stations across London that will target a BREEAM Outstanding rating.

Following thermal models of the buildings there were areas identified as being at risk of overheating and thermal discomfort for the occupants. After design meetings with both Kier and BDP the ThermaCool ceiling tile was specified as it addressed both the thermal comfort performance and acoustic performance requirement they were looking for from a single product solution.
