Вклад Uponor


The solution
The innovative building, which is due to open in 2012, incorporates three individual towers and two atria and will boast, not only world-class teaching and learning facilities
for students, staff and businesses, but also catering and leisure areas for all students, and conference venues which will draw companies and industry associations from across
Europe and beyond.

Designed by award-winning, sustainable design firm, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, and built by Sir Robert McAlpine the building will top eight storeys along the Mancunian Way and slope to four at its entrance on Grosvenor Park. It will also have strong green credentials with the use of renewable energy sources, energy efficient heating
and lighting as well as a pioneering chilled concrete slab cooling system (Uponor - Thermally Active Building System TABS).

The building has been certified ‘Excellent’ under the BREEAM environmental assessment scheme. The total cost of the project will be £75 million and is an integral part of theUniversity’s estates investment strategy.

The Benefits
Working alongside precast manufacturer Hanson, the solution that was delivered to the scheme was a pre-cast concrete floor slab system which has a fair faced permanent
formwork concrete soffit with Uponor chilled water pipework embedded beneath the soffit surface. With ground water utilised as a cooling source, a chilled water circuit in turn is passed through the concrete, creating a radiant space cooling system.

Mechanical ventilation is provided to the majority of areas using the raised access floor as a supply plenum. Return air passes into the atrium via cross talk attenuators where
it rises to the air handling plant rooms at roof level for heat recovery. Cooling is provided by a combination of cooled

Icerink in "Városliget"

Icerink in "Városliget"

The history of the skating-rink The skating-rink of the Városliget, which was opened in 1926, was the second skating-rink (after Vienna) in Europe. In WWII it suffered a bomb hit, and in the 1950's it was only repaired temporarily. The latest large-scale renovation was carried out in 1986, when the modified power-house and condenser plant were installed, and the new, third layer of pipes was laid on the rink. After some small and large engineering modifications (1999 to 2001) – since the engineering system was outdated and spoiled – Municipality of Budapest called for a tender for comprehensive architectural and engineering reconstruction of the Skating-rink of Városliget.
