Cosaf has designed and installed smoke ventilation systems for the Riverside Place shopping centre in Kendal, Cumbria.

The K Village Outlet Centre consists of 60,000ft2 of retail and leisure space in a covered environment.

Main contractor, Rotary NW, required a comprehensive smoke ventilation system for the specialist zones of the site, which included systems for both above and below ground level extraction and safety.

Cosaf was awarded the contract after demonstrating its level of experience in the application, project management and commissioning of specialist safety smoke ventilation systems.

A team of engineers was tasked to install car park ventilation, fire fighting stair pressurisation, smoke clearance systems and natural day-to-day smoke ventilation for means of escape, protection of stock and the overall building structure.

Cosaf’s car park ventilation system addresses the removal of daily fume build-up from car exhaust as well as providing smoke expulsion systems that would protect the building in the event of a fire.

The method of induction ventilation was applied by Cosaf’s specialist engineers, ensuring a safer, lighter environment with lower power consumption.

For spaces such as shopping centres, fire fighting stair pressurisation is essential.

This technique of protecting escape routes against the access of smoke, maintains the pressure within the escape route at a higher pressure than that in the adjacent space.

Cosaf employed this secure system to Riverside Place Kendal’s underground car park fire fighting stair cores.
