Adelphi Building features Ability fan-coil units
The phased refurbishment of the iconic Adelphi Building on the north bank of the River Thames in central London includes the replacement of 20-year-old fan-coil units on the seventh floor by 148 modern ceiling-recessed Trojan units from Ability Projects. These 4-pipe units were supplied with Trend BMS controls fitted by Ability. This first order has recently been augmented for a further one for 112 Trojan units for the 11th floor.
The units have cooling capacities from 0.5 to 2 kW and heating from 1 to 3 kW. They feature 2-port valves and fresh-air intakes on the discharge plenum and run at elevated chilled-water temperatures of 12/16°C to prevent condensation.
Trojan units for the latest order have quick-release electrical boxes with snap-in electrical terminals to allow quick and easy maintenance in a busy office environment.
Replacement of the existing equipment, which includes fitting new branch valves on the chilled-water and heating risers, is being carried out by contractor John Carter of Salisbury.
