Nationwide are contracted to deliver the chiller replacement project at David Lloyd Brighton with minimal down time to avoid member complaints.
The two existing chillers were badly corroded due to the sea air environment with various leaks and beyond repair. This system was a fully internal chiller within the building with remote DX condensers.
The new system was designed and installed with the whole twin circuit chiller installed externally with a protective coating to prevent corrosion issues. This was also a lower capital cost solution with higher efficiency benefits.
Due to the new chiller being located externally, new time saving prefabricated, welded 6” pipe work had to be installed from the chiller to the main headers inside.
The successful project was time critical and took 5 days to complete from start to finish including strip out, installation, power supplies and commissioning with no member complaints.
