Air Conditioning Installation in Chippenham

Client: Redlynch Leisure
Value: £3.8k

The problem with this project is that the customer did not want an air conditioning cold blast over them where the unit had to be fitted, so we chose a special unit which throws the air up against the ceiling. The air then runs along the ceiling and drops down the other side of the office. The unit was a bit more expensive than a standard air conditioning unit but careful selection and advice to the customer meant that they placed the order with us even though we were more expensive than another company. We chose the right product for them.

Planning Permission.

As the building is a grade 2 listed building and the building is owned by the Bowood Estate, we had to make sure that both the landlord and the local Council approved the position of the outside unit and what the pipework would look like. We decided to hide the pipework in a cast iron drainpipe which was in keeping with the rest of the building.

Air conditioning selection of units.

Sizing of the unit to the area is very important, if too large a unit is specified then the unit will not be working as hard as it is designed to, and will actually be very inefficient. It is therefore important to get the kilowatt output correct for the space. The new units out now are also A+ energy rated, so super efficient and as you can see from the photographs quite discrete.

Office Design and fit out in Chippenham

Office Refurbishment in Chippenham

Redlynch Leisure wanted to have a new open plan space to have an office design and fit out carried out. The initial space was completely empty and required a complete design with fitting out work, consisting of Interior space planning and design, demountable partitions, storage wall, carpets, creation of canteen area, flooring, decoration and minor electrical work. We also supplied all of the office furniture which was in keeping with the design of the building.

Design and drawing work

We came up with a few different ideas, the customer in the end went for a more traditional layout.

The office design and fit out project also required us to submit plans to Building Control for approval which we obtained on behalf of the client. The major aspects of this office refurbishment project is in using materials which were complimentary to the design of the building. We chose Komfort Klassic timber demountable system which matched the finish of the barn styled windows. The storage wall was chosen to take the place of a partition wall and a cupboard, saving on cost, and fitting with the finishes of the partitions, outside of building and the furniture, which we also supplied and installed. We also had to alter the plumbing and move a radiator in order to install the partitioning. We provided a complete package and all the customer had to do was to move in.

We also put the customer in touch with an IT company and telephone systems company to handle the requirements which we work closely with in projects.

Storage Wall

We designed into this project a product called storage wall. Storage wall combines the function of a cupboard with a partition wall. So we build it up to the ceiling and as the width is around 400mm the thickness of the wall with the contents gives really good sound insulation. It is still demountable, so can be taken down and rebuilt.

Why Demountable Partitioning?

Another key element of this work was that the partitions had to be demountable. There are several reasons why this type of partition should be used in office projects:

  1. Demountable partitions are tax efficient in that they are seen as movable items and so can be treated differently in writing down allowances in the accounts, we can also lease elements of office refurbishments. Anything that can be moved.
  2. We mainly lease Demountable Partitions as they are movable, this spreads the costs of having the work done as Demountable Partitions always cost more than customers think.
  3. Leasing of movable items is very tax efficient and Cre8tive can provide illustrations, please contact us for further information.
  4. Most landlords insist on demountable partitions in an office as it is much easier to take them out should the tenant renting the space leave for any reason. The benefit is that is saves making a huge amount of mess and destruction that would be need with a conventional stud and plasterboard constructed wall.
