Everkool has a proven track record of working alongside a number of Liverpool’s highest profile property developers in recent years; playing our part in the renovation of some of the City’s most iconic buildings.
We are proud to be able to add Ei8ht Water Street to this portfolio of properties.
A redevelopment conceived by Prospect Capital, and its lead partner Craig Blackwell, the building’s overhaul includes its façade, the creation of 96 individual residential units comprising studios, one and two-bedroom apartments with a vision for a further two additional storeys. Modern roof gardens to the second and fifth floors will provide stunning city-wide views.
Wholly aware of our local reputation as HVAC specialists, main M&E contractor STL Heating approached us to oversee the air conditioning needs for Phase 1 of the development – namely specifying, sourcing and undertaking the installation across the Ground, First & Second floors, all for commercial use with tenants including Aviva and Ascot Property Management.
The first three floors, approximately 20% of the total floor space, is to be for commercial use only, with the remainder designated for residential use.
As part of the clearance of the building and separation of the residential from the commercial space, we worked closely with appointed specialist Mees Demolition to decommission and remove the existing equipment, using cranes where required.
Once again our natural choice of industry partner for the project was Daikin, with whom we are an approved D1 Installer. Following a site survey, discussions with the architects and Daikin themselves we opted to specify the Daikin VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume) HVAC System.
The Daikin VRV system is a multi-zone air conditioner ideally suited to commercial buildings because of its variable refrigerant flow control, which provides individual zonal control to each room and floor. A total of three systems, one per floor, were installed by our highly skilled, Daikin-trained team of air conditioning engineers during October and November 2016.
