UK: Carrier has supplied a complete air conditioning system for the new home of South East Coast Ambulance Service’s regional call centre near Gatwick Airport.
The regional call centre, located in Gatwick Diamond, a brown-field regeneration project, has three Carrier AquaSnap 30RBP high-efficiency chillers, equipped with a Greenspeed intelligence control system. The chillers supply cooling to six 39MQ Carrier air handling units, connected to 114 Carrier 42NH fan coils distributed around the building.
The chillers’ variable-speed condenser fans are said to precisely match cooling output to current load conditions and are low noise, an important consideration for the building application. A night-time mode makes it possible to reduce noise emissions further during the hours of darkness, ensuring neighbours are not disturbed when ambient conditions rise.
The Carrier air handling units are fully compliant with the recently introduced European Eco-Design regulations.
The was installed by Kent-based Maybourne and Russell Ltd, while the building services consultant on the project was Van Zly & de Villiers.
“Sourcing all main air conditioning components – chillers, AHUs and fan coils – from Carrier meant that installation and commissioning was straightforward. Being from one manufacturer, the systems are designed from the ground up to integrate and communicate, and the one-stop-shop approach makes a lot of sense from a contractor’s point of view. It also gives us a single point of contact for delivery arrangements and any technical queries,” said Kevin Machin, project manager, Maybourne and Russell Ltd.
