Major export order for Gilberts goes to Indian development
One of Gilberts’ largest-ever export contracts involves supplying over 1600 diffuser assemblies worth over £120 000 for a new office complex in northern India. Fidelity Investments will occupy one of the towers at Uni Techworld, a 7-floor office complex set in a mixed development of housing, retail malls, hotels and business at Gurgaon near Delhi. The main complex, which includes Fidelity’s Tower D, will be surrounded by landscaped gardens and include a health club, coffee shop and restaurant. Gilberts has designed and made 1662 of its GSFB fixed swirl diffusers for the project. They were shipped in three containers directly to Fidelity Investments. They are designed to fit into a 600 mm-square T-bar ceiling-grid system that is widely used in British office developments. These diffusers consist of fixed bladed circular swirls with diameters from 250 to 450 mm concealed behind a square perforated facia. They will be used with side-entry plenum boxes made in India and having quadrant damper volume control made to Gilberts’ specifications. Working on a compressed timescale, samples of the fabricated aluminium diffusers were supplied at the tender stage for approval by the client so that fitting and plenum manufacture could be streamlined. M&E consultant was MacDonald Design Partnership of Croydon.
