Morgan Stanley Bank, Docklands, London

Right in the heart of London’s financial district stands the Morgan Stanley building designed by the world famous architects SOM. Despite the multi million pound heating and cooling system installed, there were concerns raised about the heating in many of the meeting rooms and offices in the building. A simple fix seemed impossible, until the Facilities Manager spotted the ThermaSkirt e electric skirting heating system.

As the ThermaSkirt could connect onto the existing power supply in each room, retrofitting a profile skirting board was straight forward. The only caveat was that each room could only commence installation after 8pm when most of the rooms are empty and before 8am the next day when the staff arrived for work.

DiscreteHeat engineers were able to complete the task in a single evening, and many of the staff were unaware of any changes in the room – except that they were now warm and comfortable compared to the previous day.
