This project involved a full refurbishment to a Grade II listed high-end residential property. As well as the refurbishment, the project included a basement swimming pool and underground car park.
The works included:
We partnered with the contractor and design team to engineer a modern and efficient HVAC system that met the needs of the client whilst dealing with the constraints of the building.
Due to the nature of the building, the design incorporated bespoke branch control (BC) box controllers and vertically converted ducted units.
We installed a ground source application to support the heating and cooling infrastructure. This was generated by the selection of the water-cooled condensing units and BC boxes. Thanks to the way the BC boxes come with port isolation as standard, we could support the client with a phased installation. This also ensures easier system servicing and maintenance in the future; engineers can use the valves on the system to shut off specific areas so that they can be worked on individually.
The underfloor heating involved installing a water to water CHRV heat-pump. The CHRV heat pump can provide water temperatures of up to 65°C without back up electric heaters and can function in ground or water temperatures as low as -5°C.
A bespoke range of horizontal ducted fan coil units modified to a vertical orientation provided the client with lower noise levels in priority areas of the property such as bedrooms, helping ensure the new services reinforced with the high-specification finish of this property.
