What Problems Did The Client Have?

Due to the high street location of the restaurant, the air conditioning equipment needed to be located in a 1st floor plant room and initially it was thought a mobile crane was the only solution.

What Actions Were Taken To Solve The Problem?

What Closewood said about the customer’s project

To be involved in a high spec finish project, with some challenging aesthetic requirements and co-ordination issues, made this an interesting and enjoyable project. Closewood is very happy with the end product, especially with one of the indoor fan coil units hidden within the balcony facade.
