Leading air condioning installaon contractor Coolair Equipment Ltd will bring stateoftheart technology to a major oce redevelopment in central London

INSTALLATION NEWS SPONSORED BY Coolair to bring latest technology to Elizabeth House

The company, which has offices in Manchester, the Midlands and Kent, has secured a £150,000 contract to install a new leak-tight heating and cooling system for Elizabeth House, close to Gray’s Inn Fields in Holborn.

The commission, from Harrogate-based mechanical services specialist VMEC Ltd on behalf of main contractor London-based Phoenix Construction Services Ltd, is part of a multi-million-pound upgrade for the tired 1960s landmark building.

With two new storeys added, the renovated and expanded building will have more than 14,000 sq ft of accommodation, equating to an extra 30% of additional office space, across all seven floors. Coolair Equipment will equip the building with a new Mitsubishi Electric Hybrid Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) ducted air conditioning system that combines refrigerant and water to ensure leak-tight simultaneous heating and cooling.

With piping carrying water instead of gas with the

same ability to deliver comfort cooling all year round, the system’s modular two-pipe design removes the use of refrigerant and the need for leak detection equipment in occupied areas. Work on site on the project is due for completion at the end of August 2019.

As an accredited Diamond Quality Partner of Mitsubishi Electric, Coolair Equipment’s new National Aftersales Division has also signed an annual maintenance agreement that includes a seven-year warranty on the system. Gideon Mayers, area manager for Coolair Equipment, says: “We are delighted to have been appointed by one of our building services partners to bring the latest comfort cooling technology that reduces both emissions and running costs to a new- look London office landmark.”

Coolair Equipment is a specialist provider of tailored cooling and heating services to the retail, residential, commercial, education and hotel sectors. Mikrofill at John Black Day Hospital

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundaon Trust provides mental health care to residents of

Birmingham, Solihull and to communies in the West Midlands and beyond

Serving a culturally and socially-diverse population of over a 1.3 million people spread over 172 square miles, it’s one of the largest mental health foundation trusts in the UK and employs a dedicated workforce of around 4,000 staff.

In the spring of 2018 work started on the John Black site turning the present building from an inpatient to an outpatient facility. The existing cast iron atmospheric boilers were replaced with 3No Ethos 110kW wall mounted condensing boilers aswell as a Mikrovent 400 low loss header/air, dirt separator. The stainless steel boilers were installed on free standing frames and provide comfortable space heating throughout the reconfigured wings. The building services design was carried out by Waterman Group (B/ham) and installed by Ward Services (Warwickshire).

In addition, the new LPHW system is unvented by way of a pre-commissioned Mikrofilll 400 pressurisation package.

Luceco lights The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton

The Khalsa Academy in Wolverhampton (TKAW) has just built a new secondary school and Electrical Contractors Air Cool Engineering Midlands Ltd, installed a host of LED energy ecient luminaires from Luceco

LuxPanel was used for a variety of classroom applications, providing a cost effective and energy saving lighting solution. Glare control and adequate illuminance on the vertical combined with good uniformity needs to be considered when lighting schools, in particular, in rooms that are multi-functional. High efficiency LuxPanels from Luceco provide the ideal solution and have a completely frameless appearance in the ceiling plane and a market leading efficacy of 152Llm/cW.

Other luminaires used throughout TKAW included Epsilon. Luceco has recently launched a new variant of the popular Epsilon luminaire, an LED direct / indirect UGR19 compliant recessed fitting designed to optimise lighting performance and maximise luminaire spacing. Epsilon enjoys an improved efficacy of 140Llm/cW due to a new micro prism optic. The luminaire is available in standard, dimmable, emergency dimmable,

emergency self-test, DALI emergency dimmable and LiteIP.

Architecturally pleasing in appearance, the new Epsilon also remains within the spirit of The Society of Light & Lighting’s LG 7 requirements. Epsilon offers up to 50,000 hours working life with no Maintenance or re-lamping requirement and is the perfect replacement for traditional fluorescent lamped fittings in commercial and educational environments.

The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton welcomes learners from all backgrounds. This principle and values ensure that their young people can make a positive contribution to multi- cultural Britain. The Trust also takes responsibility for financial and resource management that delivers efficiency and effectiveness. A new fit for purpose, environmentally friendly facility with cost effective, energy saving LED lighting from Luceco contributes to this overall ethos.

uA CGI of what refurbished Elizabeth House in central London will look like Sime gives care home an energy boost

A Scarborough nursing home is benefing from an energy boost aer a new heang system was installed

Rambla Nursing Home - part of the Complete Care Homes Group – was struggling to manage escalating bills while its 30 residents complained that it was either too hot or too cold. Maintenance manager Ken Harrison contacted Sime looking for a complete overhaul following an examination of the existing technology.

The home had previously been managing with storage heaters alone making the building expensive to heat and creating an inconsistency in temperature. Installer Tony Buglass suggested a Murelle Equipe HE 70kW which was installed between June 2018 and September 2018.

The three-month fitting process 34 BUILDING SERVICES & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEER JULY 2019

allowed residents to remain in-situ throughout and there was minimum disruption to their daily routines.

The job included removing the old system and installing a gas heating and hot water solution from scratch.

This involved new pipework and fittings, 50 new radiators with energy efficient thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs), the new Murelle Equipe HE 70 kW boiler and fitting four heating controls. Tony’s design allowed

temperature variations throughout the building by dividing the home into four heating zones – with controls in each zone to boost or reduce heating as and when required.

The result has been considerable savings on heating bills. In fact, as a result of the new energy- efficient gas heating and hot water system, the costs of running the facility have halved.
