New Bloomberg HQ leads the way for IEQ

In recent years, we have witnessed a notable change in the way we deliver a quality-built indoor environment. Occupants now have a better understanding of the impact air quality has on their mental health and employers are starting to better appreciate the quality and productivity implications.

A new European headquarters for global business leader, Bloomberg, opened in October 2017, with a key focus on achieving a quality indoor environment for the 4,000 employees it houses.

Swegon was specified for its Air Diffusion and Actionair product ranges, that could provide solutions for the building’s ventilation and fire safety needs. The flexible and discreet design of Air Diffusion FlowBar diffusers were adapted for a special application to run inside ceiling lighting channels.

A variety of Actionair HotShield and FireShield dampers were installed to form part of the building’s fire safety system, to manage smoke and fire in the event of a fire and are operational up to 300°C for at least 2 hours.

Actionair AirShield volume control dampers were chosen due to their excellent air control and system balancing capabilities further improving the comfort levels for staff and other occupants.

The building has been awarded an “outstanding” rating from BREEAM, which recognises the sustainability of buildings. Swegon is proud to have been able to add its expert services within the prestigious new Bloomberg HQ by providing products that produce an appropriate and sufficient level of air distribution which is aiding the day-to-day comfort of Bloomberg’s occupants in a sustainable way.
