This mixed-used development by British Land has Climaveneta chillers with Turbocor compressors in its central air-conditioning plant.

Climaveneta has supplied eight chillers using Turbocor compressors for the Regentís Place mixed-use estate in Londonís west end. They have a total cooling capacity of 4200 kW and the potential to reduce energy consumption by 40% compared with conventional chillers.

Developed by British Land, this 13-acre fully managed mixed-use estate comprises office buildings, a residential building with 154 apartments, 20-storey tower with views over Regentís Park and private landscaped gardens, a community theatre, retail spaces, office spaces, landscaping and public works of art.

The ethos at the Regentís Place estate is based on an holistic approach to development that is embedded in every aspect of the project ó from efficient construction to cost cut and carbon-emission reduction (up to 32%), managing environmental risks and conserving natural resources through energy efficiency, water efficiency and initiatives to reduce and recycle waste.

Building-services consultancy Watkins Payne Partnership was responsible for the HVAC design, and selected Climaveneta TECS2.0 chillers.

Features of the Turbocor compressors in these chillers include magnetic bearings and digital control of the rotor speed to maximise part-load efficiency.

Sarah Cary, sustainable-developments executive, says, ĎInstalling Climaveneta high-efficiency chillers in most buildings at Regentís Park strongly contributes to the high BREEAM ratings and energy performances of the buildings.í
