Samuel Ward Academy, London

Loop Engineering have completed the Mechanical and Public Health services design and consultancy duties, for the new Food Hall and Catering facilities for the Samuel Ward Academy in London.


An integrated approach was taken to the heating, cooling and ventilation design by incorporating high efficiency fresh air units with integral VRF coils and heat recovery, controlled on CO2. This resulted in reduced capital outlay, whilst providing a high efficiency system that can respond quickly to occupancy changes.
