Stelrad Radiators were the first choice radiators for the new Capital Quarter No4 building in the heart of Cardiff city centre’s Enterprise Zone, which provides Grade A office space, incorporating a central atrium, high quality reception and 8th floor roof terrace.
The occupiers already include Sky, Geldards and Optimum Credit. The building has been designed to offer a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, a 2.7m floor to ceiling height, suspended ceilings and full access raised floors throughout. The development is by J R Smart which was Insider Property Awards Wales Developer of the Year for 2019. Mechanical Contractor for the development was Cardiff based CMB Engineering, and the radiators were supplied via BSS Industrial in Cardiff.
Whilst the main heating and cooling system in the building is provided by a VRF system, the design called for radiators to provide heating in public areas, including the toilets and showers on each floor – a total of 54 radiators which include 45 of Stelrad’s popular Compact with Style radiators that feature attractive, designer lined fascia’s – nine of which are vertical radiators – and eight of Stelrad’s sector leading Low Surface Temperature radiators which feature in the shower rooms on each floor.
“We’re pleased with the radiators incorporated in this prestigious building,” says Contracts Manager for CMB Engineering, Greg Murdoch. “They have a quality finish that works well with the new buildings in Capital Quarter. In particular we like the look of the Compact with Style models which do exactly what they say – add style to the areas in which they are situated. And of course, the LSTs do the job they are designed for and they are perfect for the shower rooms incorporated on each floor of the building.”
Stelrad’s Head of Marketing, Chris Harvey is delighted that Stelrad radiators were selected for this high-quality project: “Compact with Style in particular are being specified over and over again across the UK and on a regular basis for commercial property opportunities such as this one. It’s rewarding to see our designer and decorative radiators selected for residential and commercial developments on the back of the quality of our products, their availability at short notice from stock and for their cost effectiveness in projects such as these. It’s a great time for radiators!”
