M&S department stores have been widely using the packaged plantroom concept throughout the UK and more recently here in Ireland. To date we have supplied units to M&S Blanchardstown (400Kw), M&S Dundrum Shopping Centre (800Kw), and M&S Foyleside (400Kw). Each plantroom was specifically designed to suit the individual needs of the store and delivered within the required timeframe.
The recently built House of Fraser Store located in Dundrum Shopping Centre allowed us to free up over 100m2 of floor space within the store by providing three plant rooms on the roof to house all of the heating plant, the chilled water pumps, and also the standby generator. The heating plantroom consisted of over 1800Kw of boiler power and also housed the direct gas fired water heaters to provide all of the DHW for the building.
Whilst the space saving was a considerable factor on this project, the financial benefits were too attractive to dismiss with a payback of less than nine months using the Pak Plant pre packaged concept.
This concept is now also being incorporated within its new store located in Belfast.
At its recently refurbished store in Henry Street Dublin, floor space was at a premium and so a packaged plantroom located on the roof was the perfect solution. This plantroom contained over 1700Kw of high efficiency boiler plant to provide all of the heating and DHW requirements for the store, with 2000 litres of hot water storage also being provided.
A centralised plantroom to provide heating and cooling to the shopping mall in Scotch Hall Drogheda was designed and supplied by Pak Plant. Due to its proximity to a nearby taller hotel, a flue dilution system was needed within the plantroom which was specifically designed to disperse the flue gasses safely. The dilution system also met with strict noise level conditions imposed on the design by the hotels location.
Another centralised plantroom was provided to Whitewater Shopping Centre Newbridge which was used to heat not only the shopping mall, but also an adjoining apartment block which was owned and serviced by the same landlord. The apartments were heated by the centralised boiler plant provided by Pak Plant and individually controlled by independent heat meters located in each apartment which provided the billing information directly to the landlord.
Due to strict height restrictions imposed by the client, a low level unit was designed to meet with the criteria for this project. This plantroom was designed in such a way as to allow service access to all plant items from outside the enclosure. This also included access to boilers, pumps, and MCC control panel.
The packaged plantroom for the O2 Offices in Limerick were designed to provide all of the heating and cooling requirements for this office building. The plantroom was designed as a low level unit with all service access being provided from without. This was achieved by using 3 no. 85Kw wall hung condensing boilers with horizontal balanced flues. All of the heating and chilled water pumps were fully accessible and the main MCC control panel was also fully accessible from the gable end doors.
Due to the location of the chilled water generating plant at roof level, it made perfect sense to install a packaged chilled water pump room in close proximity. The pump room contained all of the primary and secondary pump sets required and also the pressurisation equipment associated with the system. The unit was supplied as a complete package complete with all insulation and cladding, and fully wired and tested prior to delivery.
A temporary plantroom was supplied into the basement of this development to provide heat into the residential buildings whilst the main energy centre was being constructed. Although the programme associated with this project was extremely tight, Pak Plant were able to provide the completed plantroom to site on time in less than five weeks from date of order.
The requirement for this project was to provide a hot water plantroom to supply this building with all its DHW requirements. The plantroom contains a gas fired water heater and H&CWS booster set to pressurise the water supply.
A low level plantroom designed to provide heat to two separate parts of the same building for individual clients.
A packaged plantroom was required to provide a LTHW heating to the greenhouses at Aras an Uachtarain. This solution proved to be more cost effective than a purpose built boiler house as the location for the plantroom can be changed at a later date to suit future development.
A pharmaceutical company requiring 300Kw of heat and 8oo litres of hot water storage. This unit was sited adjacent to the main building within a service yard.
A low level roof unit designed so that it could not be seen from the street below. Containing 300Kw of boiler power and fitted with individual flue dilution units, the units components were totally accessible for service from without.
Constructing a packaged plantroom off-site was the only solution for this office fitout which had an extremely tight programme. This 300Kw heating unit was supplied within six weeks from time of order fully completed to the specification provided.
This hotel extension required our packaged solution due to the space restrictions within the existing hotel plantroom. A rooftop plantroom was provided by Pak Plant to product all the heating and hot water required by the new bedroom extension.
A chilled water plantroom comprising a twin pump set, and all associated pressurisation equipment was designed, built and shipped to site in less than five weeks to meet with the site programme.
A tight building programme meant that the only viable solution for this particular project was a purpose built packaged plantroom by Pak Plant. The plantroom was designed with a specific colour to blend in with the landscape surrounding the service area adjacent to the building. All pipe opening details were coordinated with the mechanical contractor on site so that the minimum amount of time was required to get heat on to the building once the plantroom was delivered to site.
The tight construction schedule for the school of nursing building at DCU meant that the
only real solution to meet the programme was to construct the plantroom off-site. Pak Plant were able to meet with the client and design team and produce a solution that was to satisfy the requirements. This allowed the mechanical contractor to proceed with the installation of his pipe work throughout the building whilst the plantroom was being constructed at Pak Plant's premises. The plantroom was ready for delivery on schedule as soon as the roof was constructed and was ready to provide heat to the lower floors ahead of schedule. The plantroom contained a heating load of over 1500Kw which was provide using Rendamax high efficiency boilers and hot water was provided by means of Lochinvar direct gas fired water heaters.
In order to speed up the site programme for the new Bio Science building at NUI Maynooth, a packaged plantroom was provided by Pak Plant. This unit was designed and build as one complete plantroom but due to its physical size, was split in two for transport purposes and then re-assembled on site. The unit contained over 1500Kw of boiler power generated by 2 no. Rendamax high efficiency gas boilers, with 6 no. heating circuits, and over 2500 litres of hot water storage.
A plantroom was designed to meet with criteria set out for the Office of Public Works at Dept. of Education Athlone. There was a need for a plantroom that could heat the current building but could be moved to a different location and expanded on if necessary to facilitate future development.
A temporary boiler house was required at NUI Galway to provide heating to the building school section of the campus whilst a major development was undertaken by the university. This plantroom contained 2 no. wall hung condensing boilers and a single variable speed pump set to provide the heat required. The unit was designed in such a way as to make it easy to re-use else where on the campus at a later date if required.
Two packaged plant rooms were provided by Pak Plant to James Connolly Memorial Hospital Blanchardstown during its re-development recently. The first plantroom (400Kw) was originally meant to be a temporary boiler house but the plantroom is still in use today and will remain so for the foreseeable future. The second plantroom was a temporary unit used to provide heat and hot water to the nurse's accommodation building during this redevelopment project.
