Y PAVILION AMONG THE WINNERS AT THE LABC BUILDING EXCELLENCE AWARDS

F P Hurley, in partnership with Oriel Design Ltd, is celebrating national recognition after the South Wales Police building, Y Pavilion, picked up two awards at Bridgend County Borough Council’s LABC Building Excellence Awards in March. Y Pavilion won both Best Public Service Building and Best Inclusive Building categories.

Simon Luff, F P Hurley Design Director, said “we are immensely proud to have delivered the M&E design, which was done to BIM L2, for the winning scheme, demonstrating our ability to deliver outstanding, innovative and quality projects for our customers”.

F P Hurley were awarded the £574,000 project, which provided a visually appealing and functional space with exposed services, acoustic lighting and baffles. The building provides recreational space with coffee shop facilities for South Wales Police and is situated adjacent to their headquarters in Bridgend. An outstanding feature of the project, is the design of the ventilation system which is based on a mixed mode strategy. This means that the system has the capability to react to different levels of occupancy and maintain a fresh clean environment. The system starts off in a natural ventilation mode which is achieved by roof mounted heat recovery inlets, which deliver air during day to day operation. In addition to this there is a mechanical fan driven system which supplies air when the natural ventilation system starts to struggle. This means that the operation of the system is keep in low energy use for most of the year. It also features heat recovery on both the natural and mechanically driven systems to recover heat from air being dumped to atmosphere. In addition, the lighting systems are all low energy with solar glazing to reduce the requirement for summer time cooling, but to maintain as much natural light as possible.
