Care UK – Head Office Colchester
Care UK, a major provider of services to the healthcare industry, approached Thermalair to help design and install a complete replacement of the existing heating, cooling and ventilation systems at their head office management and administration centre in Colchester.
With in excess of 350 people working in the building, and continuing to work whilst the replacement was carried out, careful planning and work practices were essential to making the job go smoothly.
Over a period of several weeks, the old air conditioning systems were decommissioned and new equipment fitted in stages, always ensuring minimal disruption to Care UK operations.
Equipment chosen was from the extensive Daikin range and included a number of their VRV systems.
The Daikin VRV system is a multi-zone air conditioner with variable refrigerant flow control. It gives the ability to maintain individual zone control in each room and floor of a commercial building.
VRV provides a total solution for heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water production, air curtains and central control.
The completed installation was handed over on time and Thermalair maintain an active involvement, which includes regular servicing and remote monitoring. The service provided by Thermalair includes remote access via Daikin’s I Touch Manager. This allows Thermalair engineers to identify faults, adjust settings, programme timers, all via an internet connection, meaning Care UK staff do not need to be experts in operating the systems. They leave all this to Thermalair.
