Adcock scales new heights
UK: Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning has secured a new service and maintenance contract at Portsmouth’s Emirates Spinnaker Tower.
At 170m high, the Spinnaker Tower is one of the UK’s most iconic buildings and is taller than the London Eye, Blackpool Tower and Big Ben. Situated in Gunwharf Quays, it offers visitors a unique visual experience which includes a glass Sky Walk which is 100m above sea level.
The new agreement will see Adcock maintain the air conditioning and refrigeration systems throughout the tower, including the outdoor units that sit on the roof at the top of the tower. In addition to the staff offices, Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning will maintain the air conditioning and refrigeration services on the two indoor viewing decks, ground floor restaurant the level 2 café, including their -4°C cold room and -18°C freezer room.
The two indoor viewing decks, which give panoramic 350° views around Portsmouth Harbour and the Solent, require both cooling and dehumidification to prevent the glass from steaming up.
The new contract, awarded to the Adcock’s local Fareham branch, also includes reactive call outs, providing all year round responsive 24/7 service and maintenance.
