Variable Refrigerant Flow System (VRF)
The Ivy Buchanan Street
Often with old buildings, the air conditioning units are redundant and present new tenants with problems that require careful planning and implementation of a new air conditioning system.
B-DACS can offer solutions to such problems which is exactly what we did for The Ivy in Glasgow who required a brand new air conditioning system to be installed.
The iconic restaurant franchise has been offering diners in London stunning food and drink selections and impeccable service, all in a lavishly glamorous setting, for over 100 years. The new venue recently opened on Glasgow’s Buchanan Street which is the second Ivy venue in Scotland and is sure to mirror the excellence which characterises the brand.
Toshiba Variable Refrigerant Flow System Installation (VRF)
We at B-DACS are proud to announce the completion of a Toshiba VRF installation at the recently opened ‘The Ivy’ Restaurant, Buchanan Street, Glasgow serving both floors. The Toshiba VRF equipment was selected by the client themselves and as Toshiba are industry leaders in the air conditioning industry we would highly recommend their systems.
The project presented us with many challenges, predominantly the layout of the old existing building and the high specification expected by the client. We were, however, able to overcome these issues and delivered the project on time and on budget.
Another notable difficulty we encountered was the removal of a redundant VRF condenser and positioning of a new VRF condenser which meant liaising with local authorities to gain permission to close Buchanan Street. Also, due to space constraints on the lower floors, some of the indoor units had to be concealed in pretty innovative ways to maintain the trademark aesthetics of The Ivy.
This project is an example of how we at B-DACS can adapt and apply our expertise to provide workable, bespoke solutions to deliver quality air conditioning systems to suit any environment.
Overall the project was completed successfully and our clients were highly satisfied with the end results.
