Case study | St Bride Foundation
The St Bride Foundation on Fleet St, London is a meeting, conference, theatre and venue public space with the world’s foremost collection of typography & historical print.
The St Bride Foundation contacted Spheretech to install air conditioning systems throughout the building. They were planning a refurbishment and wanted the install to run alongside the other works.
This project ultimately demonstrated the planning and attention to detail required to deliver a cooling and heating system, which takes into consideration the buildings varied use and its historical significance.
We installed a complex combination of inverter split systems which both conserve energy and enable us to manage the routing of the pipe work. This proved particularly challenging due to the internal structure of the building.
Due to the efficiency of the units which are on the energy technology list The St Bride Foundation was able to get an interest free loan from the Carbon Trust.
Furthermore the units installed are forecast to deliver an estimated annual saving of £13,212.60 in cooling and heating running costs along with a reduction of 72 tonnes of CO2.
Marc Knibbs, Commercial Director, Spheretech Ltd adds,
“Spheretech installed air con in this old, complex building over the coldest part of the winter. The installers worked around the needs of our staff and clients and did an outstanding job in challenging conditions.
From the moment the system was started the building became warm for the first time in its 120 year history. The cooling in the summer has proved to be outstanding and the reduction in fuel bills has exceeded our expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending them to you“
