R32 air conditioning from Daikin UK has been installed as part of a major refurbishment of the Oxford Brookes University School of Business.
The 9,000m2 Clerici Building on the main Headington campus has undergone a £34 million upgrade as part of the university’s overall plan to modernise and rationalise facilities. The School of Business has relocated from the Wheatley campus, which is to be sold for housing development.
The Daikin split systems consist of condensing units mounted on the roof of the four storey building to serve wall-mounted fan coil units with 7.1kW nominal cooling in the communications rooms below, two on each floor and one in the adjoining rebuilt Main Hall. There is also a Daikin R32 Sky Air A-Series system with a 6.8kW Roundflow cassette serving the ground floor café area.
The systems were installed by Manchester-based Daikin D1 Installers Building Environmental Solutions.
