Flexible heat recovery solution for Workspace tenants
Flexible offices provider Workspace selected a Daikin VRV IV heat recovery system as part of a major refurbishment at 60 Grays Inn Road, London.
The new air conditioning installation, serving five of the building’s eight floors, provides a solution that economically accommodates the needs of tenants – large and small – and has ended the property’s dependence on chillers for space heating.
One of Workspace’s more recent acquisitions, 60 Grays Inn Road came with some sitting tenants.
End-of-lease vacancies provided the opportunity to refurbish and reconfigure the building at the corner of Verulam Street with a range of offices and studios for the burgeoning small and startup business sector. A key decision was to replace the old heating system with air conditioning.
"Madoka has a great design and looks stunning – especially the black version. It’s good to see this Daikin innovation"
Sam Palmes, Workspace project manager
Berkhamstead-based Daikin D1+ Partner 360 Engineering was contracted to manage the air conditioning upgrade.
The project involved installing the outdoor and indoor units, pipe runs and controls for systems serving the basement and ground floor as well as floors 4-6.
Existing heat recovery systems were retained for floors 1-3, but the condensing units were relocated to the rooftop, beside the new Daikin units.
