AC upgrade at Park Inn by Radisson Manchester City Centre

Park Inn by Radisson Manchester City Centre has completed the first phase of a major refurbishment project, which includes installation of a high specification Toshiba air conditioning system.

Modern Project Services (NW) installed the high efficiency Toshiba Super Heat Recovery Multi (SHRMe) Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system on the upper three floors of the building, while remaining floors continued to operate as normal. It replaced a VRF system by another manufacturer that had proved to be unreliable and expensive to maintain.

Guest rooms are served by super-quiet Toshiba concealed ducted-indoor units, linked to TouchScreen controllers and interfacing with the Building Management System via a Toshiba connection module. TouchScreen wall controllers were chosen as they are easy to operate by guests, and can be completely sanitised between occupations.

Some 132 of the hotel’s rooms have been upgraded so far, with the remainder – plus reception, restaurant, bar and leisure facilities – to follow in Phase Two next year.

'The main challenge was to accommodate the condensing units on the roof space,” said Dean Rodgers, director of Modern Project Services (NW). “As the lower floors of the hotel continued to operate, the existing system had to be kept running, which meant building support platforms for the new Toshiba outdoor units while ensuring sufficient space around them for access and pipework connections.

 “Our relationship with Toshiba stretches back over many years. The equipment is well-engineered and supremely reliable, and their customer support is second-to-none. Toshiba distributor Cool Designs provided everything we needed to successfully deliver this project.”

  The project is part of a multi-million pound nationwide refurbishment and upgrade programme being carried out by Radisson Hotel Group on its Park Inn by Radisson brand hotels across the UK.
