Coolair brings cooling comfort to Uni facilities

Air conditioning contractor Coolair Equipment has brought comfort cooling to a new hotel and conference suite at the University of Birmingham.

The company's Midlands office in Cannock carried out a £1m contract to install an energy saving and carbon-reducing cooling and heating system for the new 172-bed Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre.

Coolair was commissioned by Midlands-based building services specialist Dodd Group and London construction company Galliford Try to fit the latest variable refrigerant volume (VRV) heat recovery system from its manufacturing partner Daikin.

The VRV system is designed to use the rejected heat from cooling sun-facing bedrooms to heat non-sun-facing rooms in the hotel simultaneously.

In addition, Coolair equipped each hotel room with a low-noise ducted chassis-type air conditioning unit which gives the occupier variable fan speed control. It also installed a precise air conditioning system for the hotel's server and housekeeping rooms.

Neil Gibbard, Midlands Regional Director for Coolair Equipment Ltd, added: “We were delighted to build on our successful long-standing partnership with Dodd Group by equipping a facility that meets the standards of a world-class university.”

The Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre, located near the university's existing conference facilities off Edgbaston Park Road, offers increased flexibility for conferences and other events, with rooms designed to hold anywhere between 20 and 200 delegates.

Coolair Equipment, which also has offices in Manchester and Kent, was founded in 1980 and specialises in providing tailored cooling and heating services to the retail, residential, commercial, education and hotel sectors.
