Our Projects

Metropolitan Police Service – Central Forensic Crime Laboratories

Critical Airflow completes work on the world’s most advanced DNA laboratory located South East London. The specification demanded tough environmental conditions are to be maintained around the clock 365 days per year.

The Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton - Centre for Molecular Pathology

Supply and commissioning of Phoenix Laboratory Control systems for maintaining tight pressurisation conditions throughout this world class cancer research laboratory facility.

The Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry

Critical Airflow Europe Ltd were selected to provide a comprehensive pressure independent Phoenix airflow control system to accurately maintain the environmental integrity of the laboratory spaces

Cell Therapy Catapult - Stevenage Bio-Centre Catalyst Campus

Critical Airflow have provided the solutions to control and manage the stringent pressurisation and directional airflow regimes at the new £55 million state-of-the-art 7,200 square meter manufacturing centre for Cell Therapy Catapult at Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst campus.

Alexion BDS – Dublin

Critical Airflow Europe have implemented the Phoenix Controls pressurisation and directional airflow solution to maintain the stringent environmental conditions for Alexion’s College Park site in Blanchardstown. The €450 million, four-year project will be the Company’s first ever biologics manufacturing facility outside the United States.

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour - UCL

When consultants ARUP were appointed to design the MEP services for the award-winning neuro-science building in London, the remit was to target a BREEM rating of 'Excellent' as the design standard. This would be a significantly impressive result for an inner city highly serviced research building with three separate environmentally controlled zones.

University of Cambridge

The University of Cambridge’s Hutchison/MRC Research Centre was met with the risk of reduced life-saving cancer research due to the escalating cost of the utility bills. After significant research, the university engaged Critical Airflow to design and implement the most viable solution. A unique Aircuity solution was recommended that allows ventilation to vary based on laboratory conditions. Having implemented the technology, Hutchison/MRC reduced total natural gas costs by approximately 41 percent in the first year, and by 54 percent in year two.

Adaptimmune Research and Development Facility - Oxford

Critical Airflow Europe (CAE) have successfully delivered an Aircuity Laboratory Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) system for Adaptimmune Therapeutics. The Aircuity Solution was specified by Hoare Lea to help dive down the client’s energy costs, the system accurately measures airborne contaminants on a continuous basis and provides the Building Automation System with accurate data to ensure that proper ventilation is maintained. Aircuity works on the principle if the air is clean, ventilation is reduced, saving significant amounts of energy. When issues are detected, such as contamination of the laboratory air, ventilation rates are raised to design maximums until the air is clean.

Illumina Cambridge

Critical Airflow Europe have completed a major project for Kershaw Mechanical to supply and commission a Phoenix Controls Solution to maintain the stringent environmental conditions for the 155,000 Sq Ft state-of-the-art laboratory research facility which will form part of a new European headquarters for biomedical research company Illumina.

MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute – Capella Project

Critical Airflow Europe (CAE) have secured a second project for the University of Cambridge for the new £79 Million Capella Project (CAE) will provide an Aircuity Laboratory Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) system which accurately measures airborne contaminants on a continuous basis and provides the Building Automation System with accurate data to ensure that proper ventilation is maintained. Aircuity works on the principle if the air is clean, ventilation is reduced, saving significant amounts of energy. When issues are detected such as contamination of the laboratory air, ventilation rates are raised to design maximums until the air is clean.
