SPONSORS INSTALLATION NEWS
Luceco in partnership with Powerbase Building Services Limited has recently supplied The Daily Mail Group with cung edge LED lighng for their Break Out Kitchens and Tech Bar located at their London Headquarters
Contour from Luceco is a linear luminaire providing individual or continuous runs of illumination suitable for many commercial environments. The LED lighting system consists of connectable modules offered in 600 mm, 1200 mm, 1500 mm and 1800 mm lengths that can be surface mounted, suspended or recessed. Seamless runs of energy saving cost effective LED lighting can be created with interconnecting power and module connectors.
The Tech Bar required a more modernistic approach with Contour providing an architectural element to the design of the area with the body of the luminaire displayed in Graphite Grey. Manufactured as a premium aluminium extrusion with high quality polycarbonate opal diffuser, micro prism or asymmetric optic distribution options, Contour has a
full range of illuminated interconnecting modules as well as an integrated driver with quick electrical connectors for ease of installation. Interconnecting modules include corner connectors, T junction and cross pieces.
To create an enhanced lit environment with the use of the area in mind, each installation required a different colour temperature output. The Tech Bar required a cool clean light at 4000K and the more relaxing space in the Break Out Kitchens, a warmer white at 3000K. Contour has a 5-year extended warranty available and offers over 100,000 hours operational life, with no maintenance over the lifetime of the luminaire, an important factor when considering applications such as commercial environments where 24 hours a day operation may be required.
‘Extreme’ hot water delivered by mikrofill at Wexham Park Hospital
Early in 2018, Amersco Inc began a £7.5 million energy infrastructure and maintenance contract at Wexham Park Hospital
As well as replacing the existing steam boilers with 1.5 MW of Combined Heat and Power plant the hospitals decentralised domestic hot water system included the installation of 38No Extreme loading cylinders. A combination of 200, 300 and 500 litre cylinders each with a maximum instantaneous performance in excess of 2000 l/hr at 60°C serves Wexham Parks diverse demands. The Wras approved Extreme loading cylinder not only maximises LPHW efficiency by operating at a t of 30°C it’s structure also ensures 100% of its stored volume reaches its design temperature.
Supported by a 15-year operations and maintenance
contract, Ameresco will deliver the hospital huge annual energy savings over the contract term. In addition, the project is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 1,621 tonnes of CO2 per annum. Given the sensitive nature of the project it was imperative that the scheme was specifically designed to make sure there were no disruptions in the day-to-day delivery of patient services during the implementation process. Construction was completed within 12 months and the project became operational in December 2018.

m Innovave spa gets the Gilberts treatment
To extend the £10m The Spa at Carden’s fourstar atmosphere to the smallest detail, even a bespoke venlaon grille in the main recepon area that appears to be floang in the air in a feature marble wall
The aesthetic challenge of the reception grilles was just one of many challenges Gilberts’ faced in developing the tools to meet the ventilation strategy designed by Kimpton Ltd. Performance challenges included finding aesthetic solutions that addressed airflow rates ranging from as little as 15l/s in the 14 treatment rooms through to 1000l/s in the swimming pool/ hydrotherapy suite. “The marble wall is a focal point of the main reception, designed to make an impact and set the scene for the high quality throughout the Spa,” explained Gilberts’ sales director Ian Rogers. “Therefore, any ventilation inlets and extracts in the vicinity had to continue that aspirational, dramatic ambience. A linear bar grille was the obvious choice to ventilate the area, so we designed a bespoke version.
“The blades within the grille appear to be floating in the air within the marble wall. We gave those grilles the Gilberts version of a Spa treatment!” Added Chris Tolley, Kimpton’s senior projects
manager. “We knew we could rely on Gilberts as a single source to deliver solutions, that met all the demands, to the high level of style required.” Beyond the main reception, predominantly, Gilberts’ high capacity two-slot slot diffusers ventilate the main Spa areas, including the 14 x treatment rooms, manicure and pedi room. Linear bar diffusers address ventilation in the bar, and café and form continuous runs ventilating the swimming / hydrotherapy pool. adjustable swirls air the offices, staff rooms and male & female changing rooms, whilst air valves ensure fresh, moisture- and odour- free air within the toilets and showers.
Family-owned Gilberts has a reputation for innovation and customisation, due to its capability to, in-house, design, develop, manufacture and supply solutions to deliver efficient air movement strategies in commercial environments. Products are predominantly manufactured in-house, to the extent it even
designs and manufactures its own jigs and tools. The internal design capability, combined with in house test laboratory, 3D modelling and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) software puts Gilberts’ in a unique position to develop from scratch, test, validate, supply and install bespoke solutions to meet specific requirements.
DunhamBush provides 21st century warmth for medieval tower
God’s House Tower, Southampton, has had its heang systems modernized with the installaon of a selecon of DunhamBush heat emiers to meet the varying requirements of this ancient monument
The work was part of a £3.1million refurbishment of the building, which has reopened as a unique arts and heritage centre, housing a permanent exhibition on the history of the 700-year old building and two new gallery spaces showcasing specially commissioned contemporary and period art from prestigious local collections.
Dunham-Bush fan convectors provide quick response heating and there is a versatile range of 22 standard models to choose from, each produced in four casing lengths and three coil types, making them suitable for a wide range of commercial applications. AM and BM Series models were installed in the Tower’s entrance and Crawford Room.
Finvector hydro-course trench heating delivers natural convection heating around the room perimeter and produces a warm curtain of air, off- setting down-draught and heat loss to ensure comfortable conditions. This proved particularly

suitable for the Tower’s Café, with the added benefit of the system’s anodised aluminium grilles blending unobtrusively with the décor. Aesthetically pleasing, Evolution radiant panels are designed for a wide range of high wall and ceiling mounting applications, freeing up both floor and wall space. The range consists of one, two, four and six tube panels in nominal lengths of 600- 3000mm in various tube configurations. At the Tower they provide heating in the Display Venue and in the first and second floors of the Tower. Grade I listed and a scheduled ancient monument, God’s House Tower stands at the south- east corner of the town walls and has permitted access to the town from the Platform and Town Quay for centuries. Owned by Southampton City Council, it has previously served as the town jail and housed the Museum of Archaeology. Building work on the tower began in the 13th century and wasn’t finally completed until early in the 15th century.
