This project involved the supply and installation of mechanical and electrical services for a refurbishment project in Chelsea, London.
The building consisted of two properties that had been joined to create one large private residence. The property comprised of a sub-basement, basement, ground, first, second and third floor.
The works included:
A major part of the project involved engineering a method of controlling the building’s humidity to protect the artwork displayed throughout.
To control individual room humidity we installed ultrasonic humidifiers, fitted within each of the VRF fancoil units. A discrete thimble type sensor measured room humidity and was wired back to the UFH manifold IQ controller serving the area. This controller produced a 0-10V control signal to modulate the humidifier and maintain the correct level of humidity.
Before activating the humidifier, the VRF fancoil unit must be in heating mode with the adjustable air temperature setpoint at the correct level. To ensure this happens we installed a duct mounted temperature sensor in the airflow supply to measure the air temperature. This was wired back to the UFH IQ controller to prevent the humidifier operating before achieving the required temperature.
