Internal Condenser (Water Cooled) Installation – A Covent Garden Retail Unit Air Con Installation Case Study
When the owners of Ben’s Cookies, a food outlet in Covent Garden, wanted air conditioning, they had to find a solution that conformed to planning laws. Located in The Market Building, one of London’s top shopping destinations, the cookie shop falls within the Covent Garden conservation area and is subject to strict planning restrictions.
Chosen for our expertise in air conditioning listed buildings and shops in conservation areas
A very small shop, Ben’s Cookies features a conveyor oven that bakes the company’s signature cookies and muffins – this makes it an extremely hot environment for staff and customers. Because of this, the Operations Director of Ben’s Cookies approached us, specifically because of our expertise in air conditioning listed buildings and shops within conservation areas.
Like many similar retail units and buildings limited in space, our water cooled air conditioning system was the only solution. Featuring an internal condenser and a split design, our water cooled air conditioning is specifically designed for buildings where an outside unit is not suitable.
Because of the tight working space, installation was scheduled to start at 7 am on a Monday morning, which is the quietest trading time for Ben’s Cookies. Causing minimal disruption to the business, the shop was able to reopen, fully air conditioned, at 2 pm the same day.
Incredibly discreet, the internal condenser unit was installed just under the counter at the back of the shop. This was connected to a 3.8kw Artel Wall Mounted High Wall Unit in the sales area.
Commenting on the installation, the team at Ben’s Cookies Covent Garden said: “it has made a world of difference”.
For this project we installed:
1 x high wall air conditioning unit
1 x 3.8kw water condensing unit
