eco-park® chosen for the UK’s largest housing project

Battersea Power station is possibly London’s most iconic landmark. Built almost 100 years ago it remains Europe’s largest brick built structure, containing 62 million bricks.

Now being developed in a number of stages that will eventually create a virtual riverside city within a city, the HC PVE brand eco-park® has been chosen to provide car park ventilation in the first of 9 phases.

One of the largest regeneration projects in Europe, the site will include over 3 million square feet of commercial space, 4000 new homes, with parking for 3,500 cars. The development will also have its own new station, shopping centres, roof gardens and every amenity for living in the metropolis.

Phase 1 will account for over 430 car park spaces over 2 floors and incorporate a loading bay and tunnel. These areas combined will require a ventilation capacity of over 600,000 m3/h and involve 4 x 1800 dia axial fans and 36 x IDV fans, over 120 x CO and NO detectors. The system and area will also be temperature regulated. Embracing environmental protection, quality and sustainability, eco-park® proved a natural choice.
