 As the world’s first international luxury hotel brand, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has been pioneering travel across the globe for more than 70 years now. Like all InterContinental hotels worldwide, Ljubljana excels in many ways: 19 floors make it the tallest hotel building in the Slove­nian capital as well as its first five-star hotel. The decision to choose Lindab as the supplier of the complete ventilation solution came natural. Whether the guests are enjoying a tasty treat in the stylish rooftop restaurant, meet up with friends and partners in the chic Lounge or Executive Club or just relax in the spa – they are always surrounded with top of the line indoor climate, provided by Lindab.

 

A multitude of Lindab solutions

The spatious and airy lobby is warmingly inviting guests to enter, while Lindab floor convectors with forced convection for heating and cooling prevent the intrusion of cold outdoor air and heat up the premises in winter season. Air is supplied through custom painted ventilating grilles.

For the ventilation and air conditioning of all luxury hotel rooms, 13 Lindab indoor air handling units are installed, allowing adaptation to the varying occupancy of the rooms and thus efficient­ly saving energy in all operating regimes. Floor convectors with natural convection are used as a completely silent and aesthetical heating solution. A special narrow model of slot diffusers is used for air supply in corridors, visually complementing the clean lines of interior design.

The hotel’s spa & wellness on the 18th floor boasts a swimming pool with a breath taking view of the Alps. A comfortable climate is provided by a modular air handling unit for swimming pool environments, ensuring a pleasant temperature and humidity level in all operating regimes. Floor slot diffusers are efficiently preventing condensation on panoramic windows, while being dis­creetly integrated in the elegant interior.

In the restaurant and lounge room the air distribution elements are incorporated in the stylish interior in a nearly unnoticeable way, since the colour of ventilating grilles and slot diffusers has been matched to the ceilings in stone grey and silk grey shades. In some cases the air supply elements are also hidden behind a decorative suspended ceiling.

Highly functional are the three kitchen ventilated ceilings, which meet highest standards re­garding air exhaust and odour removal. With low air velocities they provide comfort conditions for the kitchen personell and the guests and look classy at the same time. Fire safety is ensured by Lindab fire dampers, while built-in sound attenuators ensure a noise-free zone in the entire hotel area. The energy efficiency of the ventilation system is supported by VAV-systems, adapting the air flow to the actual needs.

 

Successful track record in cooperation with Lindab

The design of mechanical installations for the InterContinental Ljubljana started in June 2015, and by May 2016 the individual elements of the ventilation system were defined and confirmed. The project was provided by one of the most prominent design companies in Slovenia, the Biro 360, with 25 years of experience in its field.

“We have been working with Lindab for many years now and we have detailed knowledge of the technical characteristics and advantages of Lindab products, as well as the possibilities

offered by Lindab’s selection programs,” says Rudi Grahek, mechanical engineer, Biro 360. “So far, we have successfully cooperated in high-profile projects such as the Situla residential and business complex in the center of Ljubljana or a tailor made solution for the luxury yacht Soraya 46. For the InterContinental Ljubljana we can say that from a technical point of view, it represents an exceptionally good cooperation between the investor, architect, Lindab, installing company and us, since the technical guidelines and specific project-based recommendations were taken into account at all stages of the project. Without interfering with the elegant architectural design, we have achieved the maximum functionality of the ventilation system, which provides a high-lev­el indoor climate that is energy-efficient at the same time. We are proud to have been able to co-create a hotel that since its opening in September 2017 has received such impressive ratings of visitors and reached international industry recognition.”

“We have been cooperating with Lindab for many years now, especially when it comes to complex projects like this luxury hotel, where the technical and architectural demands are on a very high level,” adds the technical director of installer company Klima Ptuj, Mr Robert Kolarič. “We know, that we can count on competent technical support throughout the whole process, and that it makes our working day so much easier for us when working with a full range HVAC prod­uct supplier like Lindab”.
