Fujitsu splits to keep site workers focused

UK: More than 100 Fujitsu R32 spilt air conditioners are to be installed in the site offices for a new £700m TV and film studio being constructed in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.

The Sunset Waltham Cross Studios development is intended to attract globally recognised film, TV and media brands to the area. The complex is due for completion in 2026 and will feature 21 sound stages with ancillary workshops, offices and amenities.

Located on a 91-acre site close to junction 25 of the M25, it is aiming for LEED Gold certification and a BREEAM Excellent rating.

To date, 82 wall-mounted units, with capacities ranging from 2.5-7.1kW, have been sized by Fujitsu distributor Cool Designs Limited (CDL) and installed by London-based Citipost Power in site offices for the contracts teams. A further 20 split systems will be required for additional site offices as the project grows.

Citipost Power director Stephen Hodges, said: “It’s great to be involved with such a prestigious project and we are looking forward to seeing its completion. Sometimes taking care of the workforce on site is overlooked but this project means that the environment in the cabins will be comfortable all year round.”
