John Lewis Partnership.


HVAC was commissioned by John Lewis Partnership to carry out the replacement of an old roof mounted air handling unit and associated controls at its Kingston Store because the existing system was beyond its useful life and contained r22 refrigerant. After a review of the current usage, HVAC were engaged to design a replacement unit to cater for the revised duty and to incorporate the latest in packaged cooling and BMS controls. Energy efficiency also had to be taken into account together with new structural mounting details to accommodate the different configuration of the new system.

The HVAC Solution:

HVAC designed, manufactured, installed and project managed the whole of the AHU replacement operation, including a full CDM compliance package. In addition, revised steelwork supports were installed to permit the physically smaller unit to be installed. The works were completed over just 2 weeks including stripping out of the old plant, utilising our approved supply chain & in-house staff to complete electrics, controls and specialist steelwork installation together with early hour’s town centre craneage.


Customer Feedback:

“The project was delivered on time and to cost with little or no interference to the operation of the Restaurant, which continued to trade through this work. The project ran smoothly from start to finish and was left fully operational with detailed operation and maintenance manuals – thanks to HVAC for another successfully delivered project”
