Construction Case Study
Protecting contractors from dust and heat exposure
Regent's Crescent, constructed between 1812-1821, is a significant Regency era build. Designed by John Nash, one of the foremost architects of the Regency and Georgian periods, the semi-circular bank of houses and gardens are Grade I listed. In 2015, PDP Architects received planning permission to remove a series of mid-century offices and to restore the buildings, creating luxury homes in a prestigious region of the city. PDP's proposals include 64 new apartments and 9 mews houses.
Temporary office spaces and welfare areas were created for the running of the development. These were situated within the basement of the existing buildings, but proved to be hazardous working environments. Dust ingress, intense heat and airlessness in the newly created work areas needed to be rapidly addressed. RVT were engaged to find a solution to lower the temperature and drastically increase the quality of the air within the basement offices, meeting rooms and bathrooms.
