Background:

Newton Road Conservative Club is a social club based in Ipswich Suffolk. The established building includes a main bar area and function room, both of which had an existing aging Daikin A/C system.

Requirements:

The existing Daikin air conditioning system was 25 years old. A review of the system revealed that it required parts which were no longer available.

Pitkin & Ruddock visited site to discuss a new Daikin air conditioning system, predominantly as a heating solution for the main bar and function room.

Solution:

Pitkin & Ruddock removed the existing system, including services, and replaced with a new Daikin Roundflow system. 3 phase outdoor units were selected to match the current power supplies and minimise additional installation requirements.

The new Daikin system is intended to provide cooling during the summer months and heating during the winter. The more efficient system will also provide the club with significant energy savings.


Challenges:

Within the function room, access hatches were cut into the MF ceiling, to allow for the install of new services and easier access for future servicing.

It was important for the main bar to remain open in the afternoons 12pm – 2pm. Therefore, we planned our work to make sure we were either working outside or in the function room during these times (ensuring we cleared up and removed tools and materials by 11.30am most days).

Specification:

  • Main Bar:
    4 x FCAG60B Daikin Roundflow cassettes installed in a double twin configuration on a Daikin RZA250D outdoor unit.
    System is controlled by a Madoka Bluetooth controller.
  • Function Room:
    2 x FCAG71B Daikin Roundflow cassettes installed in a twin configuration on a Daikin RZASG140MY1 outdoor unit.
    3 phase outdoor unit were selected to match the current power supplies.

What the customer said

“The air conditioning at our conservative club died. I contacted Pitkin & Ruddock, spoke with a lovely lady who arranged for someone to come and visit us. Lee came and saw us the same day I phoned. He was so helpful and informative, no question was a silly question. He measured up and sent us some quotes for different brands & we went with Daikin.

Lee visited and called us regularly keeping us updated the entire way. The engineers who came and installed our new system were lovely! Very friendly and worked around us and our opening hours, they worked flat out, making sure everything was clean and tidy as they went along so we could remain open to our members.

These guys are simply amazing and we will never use anyone else, I can not recommend them highly enough. Lee and your team, thank you so so much you guys are awesome!”
