Coolair Equipment has secured a £150,000 contract to install a heating and cooling system for a major office redevelopment in central London.
The commission, from Harrogate-based mechanical services specialist VMEC on behalf of main contractor London-based Phoenix Construction Services, is part of a multi-million-pound upgrade for Elizabeth House, close to Gray’s Inn Fields in Holborn.
Faced with keeping disruption at a residential care home to a minimum during an ACR installation, air conditioning and heating specialist Castle Climate Control (CCC) chose Conex Bänninger’s flame-free >B< MaxiPro fittings as the jointing solution.
Much of the pipework had to be routed within and around residents’ rooms and in loft areas, with working in often restricted spaces another challenge.

However, as technology has developed, this is now not always the case.
