This project involved the construction of industrial and office units as part of the London Olympics re-location plan.
As part of the Olympic Development Agency’s remit, the project delivers 10% renewable energy.
The integration of a velta one industrial heating and cooling system cast directly into the floor slabs and fed from a closed loop ground source heat pump to provide low temperature heating and cooling was an attraction. The site received a BREEAM assessment rating of ‘very good’ for its carbon friendly initiatives.
The project was a world first to incorporate a floor heating system directly into a structural high tolerance concrete floor slab laid with laser screed techniques.
The velta system was incorporated into two units totalling 15,000m˛:
•Linked with GSHP for heating and cooling capability
•Reduced construction costs with single slab construction
•Low life maintenance costs
•Fast construction – 1200m˛ of system and concrete floor produced each day.
•Single warranty for floor and system
