Daikin UK and All Seasons worked together on the project
New community facilities close to London’s tragic Grenfell Tower have opened with air conditioning and hot water systems donated by Daikin UK in partnership with installer All Seasons Group Services.
 
The mini-VRV heat pump systems serve the new St Mark’s Road premises of the Dale Youth Boxing Club and the North Kensington Community Centre. Both were featured in BBC One’s DIY SOS Grenfell Special, the second part of which was shown yesterday evening (12 September).
Daikin UK managing director Martin Krutz said: "Originally we were asked to design an air conditioning installation but were not told anything about the overall project. When we were told it was to help the community so deeply affected by the Grenfell fire, we had no hesitation in arranging to donate the systems and asking All Seasons to undertake the installation, also as a donation.''

All Seasons co-owner Colin Owen said: "It was a wonderful experience for the team and something to be proud of. Grenfell was a major tragedy for the city, but London has given us a lot so we were pleased to have this opportunity to give something back as part of our charity programme.''

Founded around 60 years ago, Dale Youth Boxing Club was based in Grenfell Tower from 1999 until the fire in June 2017. The gym had relocated to refurbished premises on a different floor at the base of the building just weeks before the fire. For more than a year after that it operated from a disused multi-storey car park.
