Existing fan coil units were positioned including the installation of 250No new fan coil units to our clients floor plans. Positioning had also taken into account kentex services producing dynamic heating & cooling loads, our design consultants having checked the existing fan coil unit capacities were repositioned.
Kentex services installed LPHW & CHW crimped type pipework to the new fan coil unit position from the landlords HEX units 2No BMS control panels were installed to each floor level which control and monitors each fan coil unit, for BREEAM credits the BMS also monitors the various electrical, heating, chilled & water meters.
