The SCC Headquarters based in Birmingham underwent a full refurbishment. For this project we have carried out the mechanical design and installation works. A new LG new Multi V 5 VRF system provides temperature control to occupied spaces. This offers simultaneous heating and cooling while maximising energy efficiency. 5 systems in total with over 80 indoor units have been installed. Most of these are ducted fan coil units with a small number of ceiling mounted cassette’s. In areas that are not served by the VRF systems, a range of wall mounted electric panel heaters have been installed. Electric Over Door heaters have also been installed over all entrance doors to both buildings.
Fresh air ventilation to occupied spaces is supplied via local heat recovery units located within the ceiling voids again manufactured by LG. A roof top packaged unit manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric serves the restaurant. In addition, CO2 sensors are used throughout to manage air quality inside the buildings. Domestic hot and cold water services together with above ground drainage systems have been renewed throughout. Hot water is provided by a series of point of use electric water heaters as manufactured by Zip Water. A premium range of sanitary and brassware has been installed in the various WC / Shower areas. Refreshment areas in both buildings benefit from Zip tap units to provide boiling and chilled water.
