MHIE adds fine air conditioning to fine dining in Thame-side restaurant

MHIE mini VRF air conditioning serves this new restaurant in the City of London.

The only restaurant in the City of London with Thames-side seating, High Timber, features air conditioning provided by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Europe MicroKX energy-efficient mini-VRF systems. They were installed by Adcock Refrigeration & Air Conditioning.

High Timber is the brainchild of South African winemakers Gary and Kathy Jordan and South African-born London restaurateur Neleen Strauss.

The 80-seat ground-floor restaurant is cooled by four 4-way cassettes. The adjoining kitchen has two wall-mounted units. In the basement, where height is limited, two more wall-mounted units serve a private dining room and an office.

The basement also contains temperature- and humidity-controlled cellars for read and white wines containing some 40 000 bottles of wines.

Peter Lindsell, project manager from the Cambridge office of Adcock, explains that the eight indoor units are served by four MicroKX outdoor units in a ventilated plant room above the restaurant and that the MHIE system was chosen for its particularly low-height condensing unties with single fans — there not being enough space for twin-fan units.

MHIE sales manager David Lettis says the MicroKX brings the benefits of VRF (such as long pipe runs , height difference between indoor and outdoor units and connectable capacity) for about the same price as a good split installation.
