Lancashire-based dynamic valve manufacturer, Frese, has completed work on a major business park scheme in London in record time, creating a super energy efficient heating system.
Frese have supplied a series of energy efficient valves for the heating and ventilating system of the £80 million Building 7 at Chiswick Park.
Building 7 is a 12-storey, 334,000 square foot office building, the largest building on the Chiswick Park development which comprises more than 1.8 million square feet of building stock providing a workplace for 12,000 people, making it one of London’s most prominent business destinations.
Frese supplied 1060 of their Modula Compact units complete with Metering Station and solder union couplings for the fan coil heating and cooling systems (HVAC) in the building.
The use of the solder union couplings was to facilitate easy installation utilising the fan coil unit tail pipes. The pressure independent flow and temperature control valves ensure precise control in the heating and cooling system and can lead to up to a 50 per cent saving on the energy a circulating pump consumes and also lead to a major reduction on energy bills for a building, as boilers and chillers work more efficiently.
Stephen Hart, managing, director, said:
“Our products have always led the market in efficiency. That is what we strive for. Chiswick Park is a prestigious residential development, one of the key developments in London and by working with Frese its environmental impact is significantly less than if it had been fitted with more traditional manually balanced valves.”
Frese was founded in Denmark in 1944 and opened its UK offices in Burscough, Lancashire, in 2004. It is a world leading manufacturer of pressure independent flow and temperature control valves for precise indoor climate control of energy efficient heating and cooling systems in residential, commercial and institutional buildings.
