SPC has just supplied its Metropolitan powered Trench Heaters to a project for Oxford University. 42 Park End Street in the centre of Oxford is a refurbishment of the former Warehouse Nightclub. Nuffield College plan to transform the area around Frideswide Square into a new social sciences quarter. This refurbishment represents the beginning of the plan.
CBG Oxford, the building services consulting engineers, selected SPC powered Metropolitan Trench Heaters to provide heating to the spaces. The interior of building has been transformed into a series office/meeting rooms. The use of Trench Heating provides an unobtrusive heat source allowing walls to be free.
Each space has its own wall mounted temp sensor/speed controller also supplied by SPC as there is no dedicated BMS on the project. The room user sets the required room temp and the fans modulate automatically to achieve this. The Trench Heater fans are whisper quiet and operate typically 25dba @ 2m.
The standard aluminium grille (satin silver) with matching trim was selected for the project however SPC have a range of anodised options available. Click here for more information.
