BE recently completed plenum testing works for BAM on the newly refurbished Temple Quay House building in Bristol.
The 154,000 sq ft office building has undergone £15million of improvements since being bought by London investment firm Alpha Real Capital in 2019 and is occupied by the DCLG. The government department has now signed a lease extension until 2037.
BE was appointed to carry out smoke diagnostics and plenum testing, which demonstrates the air tightness of the space below a Raised Access Floor. Achieving air tightness in plenums is critical in achieving efficient air handling within buildings, and a rigorous test regime is required to meet design specifications.
