Air Conditioning Installation Case Study for a Subway Store in Central London
Cool You UK have recently installed air conditioning within a new Subway store, located close to London’s Leicester Square within a listed building.
Cool You UK worked with the new franchisee and their shopfitters to ensure that the building met Subway’s exacting standards, to give maximum customer comfort and to help meet food hygiene regulations.
As with many listed buildings, there was no place to fit an external condenser box, and no holes could be drilled through external walls. In order to air condition the customer area and the food preparation and storage zones, Cool You UK specified and installed their revolutionary water cooled air conditioning system.
Within the customer area, a 7kw ceiling cassette was fitted, and a 3.5kw high wall unit was fitted in the kitchen/food preparation area. To power these, the two water condenser units were installed within the store’s storage area near the kitchen and plumbed into the cold and waste water system.
This is one of a growing number of projects that Cool You Uk have undertaken in listed commercial buildings where more conventional air conditioning systems were impossible to install due to planning restrictions.
No planning permission was required to fit our water cooled air conditioning system, although the property owner was consulted at all stages for approval.
For this project, we installed:
2 x Water Condenser Units
1 x High Wall Units
1 x Ceiling Cassette
