Daikin has recently provided a modern HVAC solution for Scotland’s only five-star concert hall.

The Usher Hall is an extraordinary blend of historical and contemporary, traditional and modern, inside and out.

Project Background

The stunning Edwardian building required an upgrade in terms of HVAC system, to facilitate a wider range of performers and audiences. FES were appointed to carry out various M&E systems upgrades throughout the building, including new boiler plant, new chillers, Auditorium Supply AHU refurbishment & site wide BMS renewal.

Daikin Applied Service was selected because of the great customer service and reputable quality products, to supply chillers and upgrade/refurbish the existing Auditorium Supply AHU.

Technology installed

The EWAD-TZ air-cooled chillers were selected due to their high efficiency with reduced noise option.  Low operating cost Flexibility and Reliability the EWAD-TZ chiller range is the result of careful design, aimed to optimise the energy efficiency of the chillers, with the objective of bringing down operating costs, effectiveness and economical management. The chillers feature high efficiency single screw Inverter driven compressor design, optimised condensing section, advanced technology condenser fans and a “shell & tube” or plate heat exchanger evaporator with low refrigerant pressure drops.

AHU refurbishment

Daikin Applied Service were able to refurbish a 20 year old Air Handling Unit, increasing its efficiency so avoiding costly business disruption and downtime.

“Another project where Daikin Applied Service delivered what was promised. Always willing to assist and deal with any challenges or issues that arose” – Martin Abercromby – Senior Project Manager, FES Support Services Ltd

From the  initial  site  visits  to  providing  subsequent  sales  quotes  &  technical  documents,  Daikin  Applied Service worked within the agreed timescales, which at times presented as challenging given the nature of the project and its geographic location with the City Centre.

“Delighted with the service and look forward to continuing to work with Daikin Applied Service in the future.” – Martin Abercromby – Senior Project Manager, FES Support Services Ltd
