Coolair Equipment has won a contract worth over £300,000 to install an air conditioning system with heat recovery at the Gloucester Business Park at Brockworth. Gloucester Business Park was officially opened in September 2000 and is home to more than 70 companies including Direct Wines, Horizon Nuclear Power, Ageas and TBS Engineering.

The commission from M&E building services contractor Spie UK is aimed at creating a three-storey building that is both visually exciting and technologically advanced, with a plaza entrance and asymmetric fenestration and the highest standards of comfort for its occupants.

Coolair Equipment will equip the building with a new Hitachi IVX VRF system combined with Daikin DX condensers to serve the building’s air handling units. The VRF systems will deliver exactly the right amount of refrigerant to ceiling void ducted fan coil units.

The discreet, quiet running and energy efficient system is specially designed to use the rejected heat from cooling sun-facing spaces to heat non-sun-facing areas simultaneously. It also has the added advantages of reducing the building’s carbon emissions and keeping operating costs low.
