Adcock were asked to carry out replacement works for the University of East Anglia (UEA), working with CBRE. The project was to replace the condensing units and evaporators for the campus supermarket coldrooms. The existing units were originally designed to operate on R22 and were sited in a poorly ventilated plant room which caused issues in the summer heatwave.
The new units were sited externally above a loading bay area. Purpose built scaffolding was built by a specialist scaffolding contractor, so the replacement could be carried out.
As the university has facilities to accommodate 15000 students, the works had to be scheduled and completed during term shut down, to ensure no impact on the supermarket day to day business.
The University of East Anglia (CBRE) have been customers of Adcock for 15 plus years, having originally carried out a number of small works. Adcock now attends reactive call outs at UEA. Adcock is also currently installing new air conditioning at the campus using replacement technology.
