New Birmingham hotel to use innovative hybrid air-conditioning system
Building contractors design inventive hybrid VRF air-conditioning system for new Birmingham city hotel
A new 250-room Holiday Inn Express hotel which is to be built in Birmingham will be installed with the latest in air-conditioning technology from Mitsubishi.
The architecture and construction team have chosen a state-of-the-art Mitsubishi Electric Hybrid Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system for the city centre hotel.
The 18-storey building has been designed by KKA Architecture, based in Liverpool, and is expected to open in April next year.
A dedicated team of engineers and consultants have been working on the hotel’s air-conditioning system. The aim has been to create a sophisticated system that is energy efficient but which also provides comfort to the hotel’s prospective guests.
The hybrid VRF system eliminates the need for expensive leak detection units in each of the hotel’s 250 rooms, resulting in lower annual maintenance and repair costs for the hotel, according to Mark Foster of Centre Island, the firm which will manage the hotel on behalf of Holiday Inn.
Mr Foster said the VRF technology is important as it will allow central control of the hotel’s air-conditioning system, thus maximising energy efficiency.
However, the system has been designed to allow guests control of their room units, which they can adjust, using a simple control panel, according to their own comfort.
Brian Inett, of John Sisk & Son, said: “We were already aware of the Hybrid system and had been looking for a suitable project to use it on, so this was an ideal solution for the client, especially as it does away with the annual costs of leak detection maintenance.”
