Defence and Space facility embark on journey with new energy efficient equipment.
Defence and Space Facility
Location — Undisclosed
Project — Installation of Mitsubishi VRF Air Conditioning & Fresh Air Systems
Year — 2021
Closewood works closely with the National Defence Contractor to ensure new air conditioning systems and fresh air systems provide optimum working conditions.
Partnering with a large M&E contractor for a national defence client working within a highly sensitive and high security facility. Ensuring a thorough understanding of the client’s requirements at design stage followed by a collaborative approach with other trades to overcome time sensitive restrictions in certain areas ensured the project started on the right footing.
Remaining at the cutting edge of innovation and development by improving operating conditions within the facility was key to the client. Closewood installed Mitsubishi Electric heat recovery systems over ground, first, second and third floors consisting of 47 ducted indoor fan coil units and 12 condensing units. These systems serve office and laboratory areas. Alongside the installation of heat recovery systems Closewood installed lossnay units to provide fresh air to the first and second floor. From design development through to installation and with an ongoing pre-planned maintenance in place, Closewood can ensure these areas remain at optimum operating and efficiency levels.
The 16-week project coincided with the coronavirus pandemic resulting in a re-think on working practices and labour levels. Working within set areas, along with additional health & safety measures required the project remained on programme and handed over on time.
I wanted to take the time to give feedback to you both regarding the projects you have been working on with us for the last few months. It has been difficult, but I cannot say enough how grateful I am to have had the support from yourselves at Closewood.
I would also like to give feedback about the lads on site, Jack has been fantastic; he has handled the pressure extremely well and his work quality is to a very high standard. His attitude is exemplary. Sam has also been great, very good can-do attitude and always goes the extra mile. Nothing is too much to ask and it has been a pleasure working with the Closewood team, this project as you will know by now has not been the most straightforward but was certainly made easier by the positive attitude from Closewood.
