This former 15th century hospice is a listed Historic Monument and was restored under the direction of the Historic Monuments Authority.
Souchier manufactured and installed 21 roof-mounted "Ventibaie" smoke ventilators which were specially designed for this project and featured pneumatic or electrical control depending on their positioning.
The roof-mounted Ventibaie are discreetly enclosed in the slate roof covering or in the tiling in order to maintain the architectural integrity of the building, a solution which satisfies safety requirements in the area of smoke ventilation.
Thanks to a comprehensive technical dossier supplied by ourselves, the “Preventec” inspection office gave its approval for our solution to the Historic Monuments Authority.
This project gained press coverage in the June/July issue of Atrium Construction. You can see the article here.
