Host to some of the worlds most prestigious events and exhibitions, Somerset House has become synonymous with first class hospitality and dining to match.

Mansfield Pollard were responsible for the design, manufacture and installation of its new kitchen ventilation system. An air handling unit and a dedicated fire rated extract ductwork system were all required to serve the canopy system.

In addition due to the basement locality and cooking methods employed, there was a requirement for significant sound attenuation and odour and grease control.

Led by the Kitchen Ventilation team, our specialist design engineers from Air Handling and Acoustic Control worked together to design a total solution. Four canopies were commissioned, the largest being a 10m ā€˜Lā€™ shaped wall mounted unit.

All were installed with Ansul fire suppression systems. A 5.6m3/s fire rated extract ductwork system served all the canopies and bespoke sound attenuation limited any breakout noise.

Maximum odour & grease control was provided by 3 electrostatic precipitators and 39 carbon filtration units.
