Ventilation is best described as "the mechanical, movement of air to provide a clean and odour-free environment for people wherever they are and whatever they are doing in any enclosed space".

Enclosed spaces come in all guises, and each presents its own challenge when it comes to providing a clear air ambiance without intrusive or ugly pipe-work or ducting. The kitchen of a fifteenth century Oxford College and the dance floor of a modern nightclub require the same end result – a pleasant environment – but demand different approaches and execution.

But the need and right for people to enjoy clean air within an enclosed space must not ignore the needs and rights of those outside. We not only move and replace air, we can also ensure that when the removed air reaches the outside world, it contains no nasty kitchen and cooking smells or other unfriendly emissions to the atmosphere.


One often overlooked consideration is the fact that a ventilation passage from inside to outside a building provides a conduit for noise as well as air – we can design ventilation and filtration systems that prevent noise pollution. We even contract to provide scented air emissions for the residents of Knightsbridge around world-famous retail establishments.

Nor should we forget the architectural and visual impact that vents and ducts may produce. Ancient and listed buildings must be sympathetically restored or adapted for change of use. We have designed and fashioned vents and grilles that in appearance cannot be distinguished from the windows or other architectural features that surround them.
