This highly prestigious project was the conversion of the Lancashire Army Barracks, to a full 3 floor luxury office block. The new owners Circle Leasing Ltd, had acquired the building an decided to invest heavily in converting it to luxury offices. They required an cost effective space saving air conditioning system.
The company contracted the installation to Servistec who worked closely with Powrmatic to design a system that would provide optimum energy efficiency and performance for each space. The following Powrmatic Midea products were used. The project value was circa 60k and was completed within 6 months.

- 4 x 3.6 Kw 4 - Way Blow Compact Cassettes
- 3 x 5.6 Kw 4 - Way Blow Compact Cassettes

The barracks was opened by the Lord Mayor of Bury. Powrmatic’s Midea equipment was selected as it met the criteria on performance, space and budget. Recently Powrmatic have secured phase 2, for the Barracks Club House, involving the application of our SSRFC48 Super Slim Round Flow Cassettes, as specified by Servistec Ltd. The showroom and upstairs office now have optimum working temperatures increasing work load within the office and reducing internal absenteeism.
Theo Vicas, technical director with Servistec, which carried out the work, explains: "Instead, we used two VRF heat-pump systems serving ceiling cassettes as this arrangement required a smaller footprint for the condensing units. Using VRF also made it easier to conceal the refrigerant pipework in the building while ensuring ease of access for maintenance. In addition, we have installed high-wall inverter split systems in the communication rooms.
