Building Smoke Ventilation System AOV London
Cascades Apartment Building - Docklands E14.
Multi apartment tower block, located on the banks of the River Thames, continues to be a popular
upmarket living space.
Client decided to upgrade the existing AOV system to a more suitable modern and reliable type.
KM Services were consulted to design
a system which would reduce maintenance issues but also meet safety requirements of a building
with common hallways and various
means of escape.
KM Completed overhaul of each of the AOV and automatic windows and introduced a new central
safety control system for automatic
operation along with an ongoing planned preventative maintenance programme.
Since completion there has been an ongoing reduction in reactive nuisance calls experienced,
greater reliability and enhancement
of safety achieved and an overall cost reduction achieved through regular maintenance, as
opposed to purely reactive.
