Aquasmart systems get bigger

Published:  01 July, 2004

Glasgow
With nine Carrier Aquasmart heat-pump chillers serving over 200 fan coil units, this office development in Glasgow represents the largest Aquasmart installation in the UK to date.

Carrier’s largest Aquasmart air-conditioning system commissioned so far in the UK serves a prestigious office development in Glasgow. Nine Aquasmart systems each provide 80 kW of cooling to a total of over 200 factory-matched Carrier fan-coil units with factory-integrated controls.

The installation enables the developer client Walker Group to let each of the floors 0f 200 Broomielaw to separate tenants if required. An individual Aquasmart system serves each floor.

Entry to the building is through a 6-storey atrium. Each floor provides up to 858 m2 of flexible space.

The control system uses the Carrier Comfort Network to integrate with other services such as boilers, fans and air-handling plant. It provides remote monitoring capability without the need to invest in a separate BMS.

Each fan-coil unit incorporates factory-installed electronic controls, all linked by the Carrier System Manager, which allows them to operate as a complete system rather than a collection of individual units. This optimises system performance to reduce running costs, while allowing individual users to control their local environment — within parameters set by the system manager.

Consulting engineer was Henderson Warnock, and contractor was N. G. Bailey.
