Chadwick House

Chadwick House is situated in the heart of the Solihull Improvement District. Along with Radcliffe House it forms Blenheim Court which is known as one of the most prominent, grade A office locations in Solihull Town Centre.

And with Solihull ranked in the top 10 UK destinations for business it’s key that they offer a First-Class customer experience to their tenants.

The working environment is key to their success having a host of onsite amenities to attract some of the most prestigious businesses in the area.

Having recently undergone a comprehensive transformation throughout, this working environment presents upgraded common areas, enhanced WC’s as well as a modern and inviting reception area, providing an impressive sense of arrival for both occupiers and visitors.

As part of the improvements they decided to remove the existing on-site water cooled water chillers because they were old, unreliable and costly to repair. Plus, in a First-Class office, the temperature and flow of air is paramount to a productive working environment.

So, Oasis were chosen as their preferred supplier to remove all the old units and refrigerant & install a brand-new rooftop cooling tower with a new 900kW rooftop mounted packaged water chiller.

The work was extensive but with a deadline to meet Oasis ploughed through it and achieved the deadline within budget. The three months’ worth of work included:

  • Decant, remove from site and environmentally dispose of the redundant refrigerant.
  • Strip out the existing chilled water and condense water pumps.
  • Remove the existing condense water pipework from ground floor chiller plant room to rooftop.
  • Remove and environmentally dispose of the existing chillers
  • Remove and environmentally dispose of the existing cooling towers
  • Carry out builders work to accommodate new equipment
  • Install new inverter driven chilled water pumps
  • Install new mains electrical power cable
  • Install new insulated water pipework, chilled water strainer from ground floor plantroom to rooftop chiller
  • Supply and install new packaged air cooled water chiller
  • Modify and install building controls to suit
  • Balance water
  • Commission new water chiller into full operation

The result was a perfect environment for both occupiers and visitors & a new, reliable more affordable Air Conditioning System for the owners. A real Win-Win and another success for Oasis.
