Commercial Building

Balancing ventilation system, reducing noise from HVAC equipments or ensuring uniform air diffusion.

  • Over 25 years experience
  • Our commitment: Air quality and energy savings

Context

Fully expanding since the 50’s, the commercial market has little by little overtaken the agricultural and industrial markets. Nowadays France is ranked second worldwide regarding service exportation. The commercial market includes offices, hotels, business, public rooms and professional kitchens.

Common issues and constraints

Smoke exhaust constraint

In a commercial building, two of the major issues are the evacuation of users and an easy access to firemen in the event of fire.

Energetic efficiency

Energetic efficiency is measured through the criteria of the RT 2012, UBat or the HQE standards. It sets the energetic threshold of low consumption buildings, thus limiting the heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting costs.

Comfort and sanitary quality

It is necessary to compromise between hygiene and comfort in order to respect the legal rate of air renewal without bothering the occupants of the room.

Acoustic

In order to ensure proper working conditions to the people who are in the premises all day long, it is important that the noise level generated by the functioning of neighboring machines doesn’t bother them.

Several application areas

Offices

An office ventilation mainly answers issues of:

  • Hygiene
  • Comfort
  • Energetic costs

Shops, supermarkets, Commercial agencies

The notions of thermal comfort and architectural integration are part of the selling process.

Public rooms: Schools, public buildings, Universities, Airport, Pools, Stations

Public rooms are specifically regulated buildings for which fire safety is the main issue.

Kitchens

The main issue with kitchens comes from hygiene, hygro-thermal comfort and acoustic control.

Solutions

Sanitary ventilation techniques

There are many sanitary ventilation strategies depending on the size of premises, their exposure to pollutant and the number of people working in it. We can distinguish 3 kind of ventilations : natural, double flow and adjustable airflow.

Smoke exhaust

Smoke exhaust processes follow the same setting regardless of the commercial building: low fresh air intake sometimes coupled with an extraction.

Energy savings

The RT 2012 brought innovations regarding energy consumption reductions, such as the heat exchanger or the reduction of pressure loss induced by the ventilation equipments.

Acoustic

Acoustic solutions are set in accordance with the kind of noise emitted, be it related to environment, dimension or equipment.
