Armstrong Fluid Technology -Tech. Case Study

Packaged Plantroom - HVAC - Carbon Emissions

Queen Street, Glasgow

Armstrong Fluid Technology has played a key role in the delivery of the CONNECT11ONS project at 110 Queen Street, Glasgow.

A fully integrated packaged plantroom for heating and air conditioning of the new building was off-site manufactured by Armstrong at its factory, speeding installation and reducing traffic at this busy city centre site.

The new development at 110 Queen Street (the site of the former bank) is expected to provide the centre of Glasgow with 143,000 sq ft of offices and over 20,000 sq ft of retail space.

When designing the HVAC facilities for the new building it was decided that off-site manufacture would have particular benefits. The specifier at BAM had worked on projects involving integrated packaged plantrooms before, and recognised the significant opportunities that off-site manufacture could bring for the Queen Street project.

Armstrong Fluid Technology was involved early in the project and utilised the latest 3D modelling technology to optimise the design of the plantroom and streamline the logistics of delivery and installation. The plantroom was fully assembled at Armstrong’s factory and, in line with the building schedule, was delivered to site requiring location on the roof and final connections only.

As the site is in one of the busiest parts of Glasgow, off-site manufacture of the plantroom meant that contractor traffic relating to this aspect of the project could be minimised, reducing health and safety risk and easing disruption in the immediate vicinity.

Off-site manufacture also meant that assembly of the plantroom would be carried out concurrently with the construction phase of the building, rather than having to wait until the building was completed before it could begin.

The choice of Armstrong components for the HVAC systems housed in the plantroom will also provide the new building with outstanding levels of energy efficiency. Installed are Armstrong Design Envelope IVS pumps which adjust automatically to changes in load, matching energy consumption to demand and reducing wastage.

In addition to ensuring that the installation is compliant with the latest legislation on motor efficiency, the in-built intelligence of the variable speed pumps delivers significant energy savings and reductions in carbon emissions.

The Armstrong Design Envelope pumps are also capable of adjusting to changes in load across a wider range of operational conditions than any other available pump range. This means that energy efficiency can be maintained across the various changes in occupancy and usage of the building.

“Armstrong’s extensive experience was invaluable to ensuring the final product was delivered on time, to a high standard of workmanship, and nearly two years later, remains defect free.”
