The Olympic Excel Fleet Depot Temporary HVAC Project- Case Study
Advanced Climate Rentals Install a Temporary HVAC System to serve a Staff Breakout Area Built for the Games
ACR were approached by SMP Building Services Consulting Engineers to supply specified hire equipment to the project that was under design. A complete new rest area for the Olympic Fleet staff was to be constructed from scratch in the underground car park area at the Excel Centre London. The new space required a complete temporary HVAC system maintain comfortable conditions. Air distribution was also included in the package.
A temporary on- hire heating, ventilation and air conditioning system was required along with a suitable distribution system. An ACS 160.120 climate control air handling system was specified along with a water chiller and air sock distribution. The air handler was deliberately oversized to provide the required volume of air at lower velocities, reducing noise.
The temporary HVAC system consisted of the following; A 120kw rental water chiller with on–board pump was supplied to provide cooling as required. 100% fresh air supply was used- filtered at the AHU.
Air distribution from the AHU was in solid spiral ducting feeding 3x 25mt 400mm internal fabric air socks.
The system was installed over a period of 2 days and was in operation for 3 months.
