Commercial Air Conditioning Case Study for Offices in Islington, London
A water cooled air conditioning installation without an outside condenser box
Our client expanded his photo library business and relocated to offices within a listed building on Domingo Place in Islington. He approached Cool You UK during the early stages of the planning process to totally refurbish his newly acquired building.
It was soon established that a conventional air conditioning system would not be appropriate due to time and planning constraints (an external condenser box was not allowed by planners). We worked closely with the client and his architects to establish the optimum specification for the air conditioning system. This included two 7kw and one 3.8kw Water Cooled Air Conditioning Systems with high wall room units in three rooms.
Being involved early-on in the project, the Cool You technical team have worked closely with the client’s contractors allowing the water cooled air conditioning system’s pipework and relevant electrical wiring to be installed during the first and second fix stages of the refurbishment. This allowed the water condensing units to be located in a suitable area for future servicing/maintenance close to incoming services. All pipework has been chased into the walls and plastered over.
Although the building was very much a work in progress, we fully installed the air conditioning system and completely sealed the wall units pending the completion. Our technical team returned to fully test and commission the system and run through the operating procedures with the client and his team.
Commenting on his new air conditioning scheme;
“Cool You UK provided a perfect solution for our A/C requirements. From the initial survey, to first and second Fix through to final sign off has been seamless. A great solution if you are unable to host exterior condensers”
This is one of a number of commercial air conditioning projects that we have undertaken recently within listed buildings in London. In all cases, our team have worked successfully with our client’s appointed contractors such as Mansell Balfor Beatty (Wedgwood Court Apartments, Islington) and small London based property developers.
