A new civic headquarters for Harrogate Borough Council is being built on its Knapping Mount site in Harrogate.  The new council offices, which have been designed by Yorkshire based architects Farrell & Clark, aim to enable the council to save in the region of £1 million a year in operating costs.  Construction work has already started and the building is planned to be fully operational in the summer of 2017.

An important part of the project is to ensure that it is built to BREEAM Excellent standards. BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building’s environmental performance, ensuring future running costs are greatly reduced.

Monodraught have been specified to provide natural cooling and ventilation to all areas in an open plan office arrangement, whilst a central atrium space will be ventilated by our bespoke ventilation system.  Monodraught will be providing 30 N° COOL-PHASE® systems and 2 N° Windcatcher Classic bespoke circular GRP systems.  Monodraught’s COOL-PHASE systems specifically contribute credits towards BREEAM standards for sustainability across a variety of factors, including credits for lifecycle costs, indoor air quality and for the use of low and zero carbon technologies.

COOL-PHASE® is a low-energy cooling and ventilation system that creates a thermally comfortable, fresh and healthy indoor environment by monitoring internal air quality and ensuring there is a supply of fresh air.  The COOL-PHASE® system is energy and carbon saving, it uses an energy efficient variable speed fan with no compressors, pumps or other energy intensive components.  A 5A single phase mains supply is all that is required.

Natural ventilation will bring a steady supply of fresh air into the civic headquarters, maintaining CO2 levels and expelling stale air to the atmosphere using the natural buoyancy of thermal forces. 

Monodraught natural ventilation and cooling systems have proved to be consistently effective and reliable over many years.  The constant reporting and feedback to Monodraught’s dedicated R&D team enables our products to be improved in their manufacture, aesthetics and performance.
