Since 1897 The King's Fund has been providing a platform for the UK's health system. At present it acts as an independent charity working to improve health and health care in England.
CCPHVAC have been actively maintaining the HVAC plant since 1999 and were tasked to replace all existing R22 air conditioning systems. As the building has listed status and is fully occupied the planning of works required the greatest of care to minimize disruption. We tendered and won the contract.
The air conditioning plant is installed at different levels of the building from the 6th floor down to basement crofts.
All the new plant was required to be energy efficient using latest low carbon refrigerants. Daikin VRV plant operating on R410a was selected. A total of 11 condensers with associated fan coils were replaced over a 20 week programme of weekends. The works were completed ahead of time in 16 weeks. A total of 5 new areas not previously conditioned were added to the new systems.
The site has now been operational for six months, and not a single breakdown has occurred. The new plant continues to fulfil the needs of The King's Fund.
David Hayes, Building Manager, says
We are delighted we chose CCPHVAC as their extensive knowledge of the building meant they delivered the project on time and on budget.
