Full HVAC Scheme
LUSH instructed FWP UK to complete a full Mechanical Design for their Flagship Spa Store in New Street, Birmingham. This comprised a full HVAC scheme for the two-floor retail space using Mitsubishi Electric VRF Condenser Units with Exposed Ducted Fan Coil Units / Grilles.
The First Floor Spa area was designed with a further VRF system and individual Ducted Fan Coil Units with linear grilles in each treatment room. Fresh air is catered for by high capacity, Mitsubishi Lossnay Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery Units providing supply and extract to the various spaces whilst recovering valuable energy to keep running costs to a minimum.
Hot and Cold Water and Drainage from both the retail and spa spaces was critical and the full design ensured that Lush had sufficient capacity for their requirements as well as allowing for future expansion.
The water installation comprised a 10,000 ltr Cold Water Storage tank with duty/stand-by booster set, Hot Water is generated by two 800 ltr Megaflow Cylinders.
Drainage has been achieved with a gravity solution and Saniflow range of professional macerator pumps.
We successfully tendered the project and at the time of opening, this was the largest Lush store in the world.
