SE Controls have been contracted by Balfour Beatty to provide a natural ventilation system for the new £311m PFI development, Pinderfields Hospital. The system will be used to regulate the internal air temperature and quality of the Stepping Stones Building.

The natural ventilation system being provided will include automation of the external facade to draw through clean fresh air into the building.

The external façade is typically used in natural ventilation strategies to provide either single sided or cross ventilation. The design process takes into account the location of the building in relation to prevailing winds, occupant density of each specific zone adjacent to each external façade.

The design strategy of controlling the automatic opening vents (AOVs) is by integrating with the BMS and when elevated CO2 and temperature levels will trigger the AOVs to open, exhausting stale hot air and introducing cool fresh air.
