Daikin donates HVAC system for boxing club destroyed in Grenfell Tower fire.

Daikin donates HVAC system for boxing club destroyed in Grenfell Tower fire.

New facilities in the shadow of London’s Grenfell Tower have opened with energy efficient air conditioning and hot water systems donated by Daikin UK in partnership with installer All Seasons Group Services.

Daikin UK managing director Martin Krutz says the project was a great opportunity for both a manufacturer and an installer to make a practical contribution to the community re-development.

He says: “Originally we were asked to design an air conditioning installation – but were not told anything about the overall project. When we were told it was to help the community so deeply affected by the Grenfell fire, we had no hesitation in arranging to donate the systems and asking All Seasons to undertake the installation, also as a donation.

“As a result, both the club and the community centre will benefit from tapping into a free source of renewable energy and cost-effectively converting it into usable heat.

“We hope that our contribution will help the process of healing in the North Kensington community.”

Loughton-based All Seasons Group Services is a Daikin D1+ Partner and has been installing their systems since 2001. All Seasons co-owner Colin Owen says his team were involved with the project over an eight-week period.

“It was a wonderful experience for the team and something to be proud of,” he says. “Grenfell was a major tragedy for the city, but London has given us a lot, so we were pleased to have this opportunity to give something back as part of our charity programme.

“The project is also significant as it has air source heat pumps – Daikin Altherma High Temperature units – to provide hot water for the club’s showers and kitchen. Heat pumps like these are increasingly being specified and they are very much the future in our industry.”

The new gym has a high-capacity mini-VRV heat pump, serving four Round Flow cassettes to provide space heating or cooling, as required. It also serves club founder Mick Delaney’s office upstairs via a wall mounted unit.

The community centre also has a Daikin high-capacity mini-VRV heat pump, serving a total of nine floor-standing chassis units which are concealed by architectural detailing.
