UK: Samsung heat recovery air conditioning systems have been installed in the new £2m hospitality facility at National League football club Eastleigh.
The club’s Silverlake Stadium in Hampshire has been transformed through the development of this new 300-person conference/hospitality suite, 120-seater restaurant and club shop.
Samsung distributor Freedom Air Conditioning provided contractor Royston Group with support throughout the product selection process and recommended Samsung’s leading innovative air conditioning unit, the Samsung 360 Cassette. The unit was selected for its stylish design to match the modern facility.
The stadium also wanted to achieve a BREEAM Excellent status for the building and the energy efficiency of the Samsung solution installed was instrumental in achieving this rating.
The Samsung heat recovery air conditioning system chosen not only provides the heating and cooling requirements of the new development but via a new Samsung Hydrobox incorporated into the system, also delivers all of the domestic hot water needs of the facility. In total four products were installed: 360 cassette with circular facia, 360 cassette with square facia, DVM S VRF hydro unit and Samsung DVM S heat recovery condensing unit.
Royston Group project manager Craig Beisley maintains that the design of the Samsung 360 Cassette was the determining factor for this application. “The high-performance air delivery pattern provides an even distribution of air within the room and it’s integration into a modern environment was paramount for the requirements of Eastleigh Football Club to create a comfortable space for its fans,” he said.
