How can we proof the indoor climate against tenancy changes?
The majority of commercial premises undergo continual change as one tenant moves in or when a partition wall is moved for example. Those changes are just part and parcel of a dynamic property, but do make it essential to install adaptable room products in order to consistently guarantee a sound indoor climate. Typical problems at room level are that the existing installations get noisy when the air flow is cranked up, or dump cold air straight into the occupied zone if the air flow is turned down. At times, their capacity range is so limited that they are unable to cater for increased demand for cooling. The consequence is either that the tenant’s indoor climate is unsatisfactory or that the property owner has to invest in costly reinstallations. The alternative is to install products that have the capacity and adaptability to cater for changing demand in terms of the purely physical installations such as air flow. This applies equally to the control system, where even minor changes might be pricey.
How do I ensure that my indoor climate investment is sustainable over the long term?
Sustainability in this context has many senses, but perhaps the most essential aspect is that the products installed maintain consistent quality performance. With products that continue to perform as promised year on year, and with generous warranties, long-term support and ready access to spare parts, you can have every confidence that your original calculations for the build investment will be on-budget. Another aspect of sustainability will be to ensure that the solutions are upgradable over time. Stricter requirements regarding the energy performance of buildings and high expectations regarding indoor comfort level, alongside the rapid advances in IT and communications mean that future-proofing your installations is more important than ever. With systems that are easily accessible and scalable, you have the best platform for next-generation solutions connectivity.
