Nuaire has supplied Boxer Bespoke air handling units (AHU) and XBC heat recovery units to the University Arms Hotel, Cambridge as part of a major redevelopment project.
The University Arms Hotel in Cambridge first opened its doors in 1834 as the city’s first hotel. It has now reopened after an £80m transformation, which combined a complex heat recovery retrofit with a sympathetic restoration scheme.
Ryan Hawken has been appointed contracts manager at ECEX. He was previously project manager for AHS (Specialist Services) which builds and supplies air handling plant, where he gained experience interfacing DX systems with AHUs. Before that he was air conditioning contracts manager and chiller and VRF service engineer at Basingstoke-based Servio, specialising in electrical and mechanical maintenance.
Big Foot Systems has supplied rooftop plant support on a new commercial office building near King's Cross station in central London.
The split-level project used a range of non-penetrative frames including Custom Safe Access systems, Bespoke Frames, Custom HD Frames, HD Cubes and Custom HD Supports to provide safe access and support air handling units, chillers and high level pipes.
Weatherite has supplied an efficient cooling solution for a leading retailer's first new outlet in more than a decade.
When Weatherite was asked to tender for the design and manufacture of AHUs at the new Fenwick store in Bracknell, it used its newly developed 3D visualisation software to help deliver up to 76.5% efficiency – surpassing the requirements of 2016 ErP legislation efficiency of 67% and the 2018 efficiency of 72%.
Big Foot Systems has supplied HD Beams, Custom Steels and Custom HD Frames as part of a £40 million redevelopment of a shopping centre. Originally constructed in the late 1960s, the centre required a refurbishment to be able to compete with other local retail complexes, including new HVAC plant.
With retail space at a premium, new locations were needed for the chiller plant with the rooftop an obvious choice. Meanwhile, the existing AHUs also needed to be replaced and relocated. The original AHUs were on plinths constructed when the shopping centre was built, but since the new AHUs were larger, the existing plinths could not be used without structural alteration.
Big Foot Systems has supplied Custom Frame non-penetrative systems to support and secure rooftop AHU plant at a new £11.3 million leisure centre.
Sam Birch from Big Foot Systems said: “Although the plant was part sunken in a plant well, the exposed nature of the site meant that swirling winds were quite high at roof level. The Big Foot project manager surveyed the site and our technical team worked with the contractor to make sure the plant was safely supported on the single ply roof.”
