Year round comfort for prestige hotel marquee

A heating and cooling scheme from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has enabled a leading luxury hotel to use its prestige pavilion throughout the year. Audleys Wood Hotel in Basingstoke is part of the Hand Picked Hotels Group which has recently won the AA Hotel Group of the Year.

Aircon Services (Tamworth) worked with MHI distributor 3DAir to plan a scheme for the 30x12m permanent marquee - holding up to 200 people – which is used for weddings, events and conferences.

The hotel had previously used propane gas blowers to provide space heating, with attendant problems of noise and condensation. Aircon has done substantial work on hotels, but this was the first time they had tackled a marquee. “We were looking for a solution that would be quiet, unobtrusive and cost-effective. It also has to be floor-standing which led us immediately to the MHI units.” said Aircon’s Marc Newbold

Two twin and one single split provide 60kW of heating and cooling, with five FDF125VD slimline indoor units. The units are fixed to the insulated walls of the marquee but the weight is borne by the permanent wooden floor.  Drapes have been cut around the units to help them blend into the elegant surroundings.

The system was installed in August 2012 and was almost immediately challenged by the climate. According to Ian Maxey, Facilities Manager of Hand-Picked Hotels: “We had a warm spell for an event right after installation when we were glad of the new cooling capability.  Since then the onset of autumn has required heating with very satisfactory results.”
