GlaxoSmithKline’s Headquarters / GSK Asia House
GlaxoSmithKline’s Headquarters / GSK Asia House is a 6-storey corporate office located at Rochester Park, Singapore. The corporate office was designed by a renowned design architect with an atrium space connecting all 6-storeys as a single volume. The outcome is an agile, open and multi-layered campus that brings the aspirations of GSK’s people to life around them.
Due to the complex atrium design and the architectural intent to use minimal smoke curtains, the mechanical smoke control system for the atrium was upsized to eliminate/reduce the need of smoke curtains to form the smoke reservoir in the atrium space.
Extensive CFD modelling were conducted to derive the optimized smoke control system to meet the building design intent with acceptable life safety criteria.
