Description
PROJECT
Designed by Foster and Partners, the Willis building is London's fourth highest skyscraper and the headquarter of Willis Group, the world's third largest insurance broker.

CHALLENGE
In order to achieve its excellent environmental rating these two
adjoining structures of 10 and 28 storeys required an air conditioning system designed to the most stringent requirements. The system, besides ensuring highest energy efficiency, also ensures lowest noise emissions, compact sizing of transformer and power supply, and the most favourable selection of the protection devices between these
devices and the unit.

SOLUTION
The most suitable choice was based on 7 compact TECS mini centrifugal air cooled chillers. They allow simplified logistics, unbeatable energy efficiency at part loads, lowest inrush current and extremely quiet operation. Hydronic fan coils in the false ceilings ensure optimum comfort conditions with minimal aesthetic impact to the office interiors.
