Our Challenge

We were employed to replace and upgrade the existing A/C systems installed in the Basement, Lower Ground and part of the Upper Ground Floor areas. 

The existing primary air ductwork systems had been stripped out on the floor plates by the main contractor, these needed to be reinstated to suit the new open plan office layout.

A new WC and shower block for staff use was created in the Basement, this area needed both supply and extract ventilation systems.

Our Solution

The Open Plan office areas were served by 5no new Daikin Heat Recovery VRV systems with a total of 39no internal ducted type units. A new dedicated split system was installed in the main Reception.  All systems were commissioned and added to the existing Daikin
I-Touch Central Controller.  From the start the exposed internal units caused an issue due to clashes with lights and cable tray runs, due to the design of the slab and corresponding steelwork and beams.  We overcame this by working closely with the client to find the best solution not only mechanically but also aesthetically, all secondary ductwork was insulated and then finished with an Aluminium clad finish.

The Condensers had to be craned in through a gap not much larger than the units themselves, the lift was undertaken on a weekend and went very smoothly with no issues.

A new dedicated MVHR unit and associated ductwork was installed to provide supply and extract air to the new WC and shower block in the Basement.  This system had to be co-ordinated with existing high-level services, new domestic plumbing & public health services and the buildings’ existing slab and beam issues.
