Project Highlights

  • Reduced fan coil energy by 13%
  • Shifted EPC rating points from32 to 31 on an already highperforming building

“Throughout the design process the low energy credentials of Artus, combined with its design simplicity and adaptability, made it an obvious choice to incorporate into the80 Charlotte Street fit-out.”

Iain Moore,
Fit-out Services Design Lead

Artus was used in the Category B fit-out areas only. If it had been used throughout, the energy reduction would have been greater.
