A replacement Toshiba air-conditioning system installed at Thorpe Park in Leeds is equipped with the new generation of touchscreen Smart Touch controllers (pictured). They give engineers and building managers immediate access to system controls, setpoints and a comprehensive range of diagnostic and analytical tools via a colour high-definition screen.

This open-plan building is cooled and heated by a Toshiba SHRM-i 3-pipe heat-recovery VRF system, with a 2-pipe SMMS-i VRF heat-pump system serving separate administration areas.

The system was supplied by Cool Designs and installed by HLA Services, It has five outdoor units with 47 indoor units, mainly ducted, delivering up to 416 kW of cooling.

It replaced an aging chilled-water systems.

The building has an open-plan multi-storey work space with a high central atrium. Cool Designs worked with HLA to produce detailed heat-load calculations and then created a system using Toshiba’s pipework and wiring software package.

Chris Oldroyd, who headed the project for CDL, explained, ‘The design plays to the respective strengths of Toshiba’s heat-pump and heat-recovery systems, making the most of the opportunity for heat recovery to reduce running costs and carbon emissions.’
