A particular requirement of the fire strategy for the building was that the corridors and communal areas are all naturally ventilated via automatic opening ventilators (AOV) controlled via local thermostat. The AOVs can also be opened manually via a local secure switch. The AOVs also provide smoke extract in the event of a fire. The AOVs are linked to a central smoke extract panel located in the entrance lobby.
