American Golf Europe’s largest golf retailer. They have 102 stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland and FWP have recently carried out the air conditioning installations in conjunction with Noble Interiors at their stores in Belfast, Worcester, Northholt, Swindon and Hedge End Southampton Stores.
The problem – Worcester – With no ceiling installed within the shop retail unit, aesthetically everything needed to be perfect from the supports off the perlings above to the ductwork and grills everything would be on show.
The requirements – To provide heating and cooling to the main shop area incorporated within the design, budget and programme via ductwork installed at high level. To utilise the store room for installing the Air Handling Units (AHU) but ensuring they were at high level to allow for racking to be installed below.
The solution – 2 no 25kw High static ducted units, tee’d into one common duct with drop down legs as per the design teams requirements with diffuser type grills.
The kit used (brand, kW, HP etc) 2 no Panasonic High Static PACi 25kw ducted units
What was unique to the project – from start to finish the project allowance was 12 days including weekends, all of FWP’s initial works was all at high level within the retail demise and needed to be carried out on scissor lifting equipment and completed within 4 days as the new finshed floor was to be laid. From co-ordinating the delivery of the materials to site to the installation, testing and commissioning, FWP completed the job within their allocated time scale successfully.
Cost saving calculations: This was a brand new installation, with COP’s of 3.41 in heating mode and 2.62 in cooling mode to get the required amount of duty for the retail area the Panasonic PACi units were the most efficient for the job within the budget allocated.
