Initium plan and deliver a new Air Conditioning System

Initium Awarded Major Investment Project By UK Serviced Office Operator

Serviced office operator Business Environment has instructed Initium DBC Ltd to project manage a £1.5m investment to transform the air-conditioning system at one of its key UK business centres. The move is part of the company’s ‘green’ strategy to deliver maximum energy-efficiency across the business.

The VRV® (Variable Refrigerant Volume) System, which will be installed at the Milton Keynes centre during 2012 provides the latest state-of-the-art technology.

It works by recycling unwanted heat, so that different rooms within one building can benefit from varying temperatures. Whilst one room is ‘cooling’, the rejected heat can be transferred to another that requires ‘heating’.

Andrew Emden, Director at Initium, said: “This significant project is time critical to our client and is a major investment as part of their ongoing commitment to reduce carbon emissions and help fight climate change.”

“Not only will the air-conditioning system provide greater energy efficiency for the company, but it will grant improved comfort for their clients who demand the perfect office environment to get the most out of their working day.”

The ‘green’ investment is certainly not the first for the this client, a serviced office operator, who has also installed with the help of Initium, sensitive lighting, waste recycling schemes and power saving plant across their 18 operational centres in the South of England.
