UK Air Conditioning Design, Installation and Maintenance

A new article on the TK Projects’ Marketing Partner pages highlights the work of Turn Key Air Conditioning. TKAC is part of the Turn Key group of companies, specialising in the built environment.

TK Air Conditioning is one of the UK’s leading design, installation and maintenance providers for air conditioning. With technical and service centres all over the UK, TK Air Conditioning clients include shops and retail centres, public buildings, airports, hotels and restaurants.

TKAC utilise the latest in energy efficient air conditioning technology in designing air conditioning systems that are tailored to every project. They take into account the business needs of the client and install air conditioning with the minimum of disruption. TK Air Conditioning have pioneered off-site manufacturing techniques and developed ‘plug & play’ air conditioning systems that can be retro fitted into existing business premises.

One recent example is the design and installation of an air conditioning system for the Premier Inn at London’s Kings Cross St Pancras. With 276 gust bedrooms, restaurants, bars and meeting rooms, there were many factors to consider.

For this project TKAC used a Mitsubishi Electric high efficiency heat recovery Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) air conditioning system. Operated by the Mitsubishi’s Melcotel™ centralised controller – which has been designed specifically for the hotel sector – this is a highly energy efficient system which ensures heating and air conditioning is utilised exactly where and when it is needed.

The outdoor units for the hotel were constructed off-site on two pre-piped and cabled skids and lowered into position on the hotel roof one quiet Sunday morning. The whole installation was completed in a matter of hours without disturbing a single guest.

Affordable Lease Finance for Tax Efficient Air Conditioning

In a recent article on the TK Projects partner pages, Lease Air Conditioning outline the advantages of lease finance for the installation and maintenance of energy efficient air conditioning systems.

Lease Air Conditioning is the lease finance arm of Turn Key Air Conditioning, one of the UK’s leading design and engineering firms for commercial air conditioning systems. TK Air Conditioning clients include retail outlets, shopping centres, restaurants, hotels, airports and public buildings. 

Turn Key introduced lease hire as an option for its clients when they realised that they were often retro-fitting air conditioning in buildings that had only recently been built of refurbished. It seemed that air conditioning had usually been part of the original designs but had been postponed due to financial constraints at the time. And yet the fact remains that it is usually more expensive to add air conditioning at a later stage than installing it at the same time as other building work. 

Lease finance for air conditioning offers many benefits.

• Fixed monthly payments
• Payments are unaffected by changes in interest rates
• There are no fixed or floating charges or other security required
• Lease finance preserves other lines of credit for other applications
• Payments are 100% Tax Allowable

Lease finance can cover all aspects of the building refurbishment project including architects fees and design costs as well as all capital expenditure. Air conditioning maintenance and servicing costs can also be included so there will be no unexpected bills at a later date. And at the end of the lease finance period, all air conditioning equipment is transferred to the client for a prearranged and nominal fee.
