LEATHERHEAD, England, 26 Oct. 2020 – CIAT UK has won a major national award for its contribution to Landmark Pinnacle, a new 75-storey development in London’s Canary Wharf that is set to be one of Europe’s tallest residential buildings. CIAT is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), a leading global provider of healthy, safe and sustainable building and cold chain solutions.
More than 1,700 of CIAT’s recently developed Major Line fan coil units (FCUs) were installed by Haydon Mechanical and Electrical Ltd to provide a comfortable indoor environment in apartments, common areas and facilities, distributed throughout the building.
CIAT’s successful project-focused collaboration with Haydon has now landed the company the award for Collaboration of the Year in the prestigious HVR Awards 2020, which recognise innovation, excellence and achievement across the heating and ventilating segment in several categories.
CIAT supplied energy-efficient CIAT four-pipe FCUs in six sizes and configurations, to suit the variety of capacities required and situations within the building. Manufactured at CIAT’s global centre of excellence at Culoz, France, the units are equipped with bespoke controls and connection sets specified by Haydon.
“One of the biggest challenges for equipment specification was space constraints. Indoor units are installed in ceiling voids to ensure a perfect concealed finish. With limited headroom, this required changes to the design of the fan coil unit,” said Paul Graham, technical director, Hayden, and project lead. “We worked closely with CIAT to enable Major Line to fit the available space at Landmark Pinnacle, which required a new layout and extended drip-tray. The company provided timely support on site whenever needed, and it proved to be a very successful collaboration.”
CIAT built a support structure around FCU connections to ensure the factory-installed valve sets were protected and supported during transit, so units arrived on site in perfect condition.
“Landmark Pinnacle is a magnificent new building in the UK’s capital. We are delighted that CIAT was chosen for the project and has now been recognised for its can-do approach and close cooperation with Haydon to deliver an outstanding solution,” said Paul Smith, sales director for applied products, Toshiba Carrier.
The 239m (784ft) building, by developer Chalegrove Properties, comprises more than 800 premium residential apartments with spectacular views across the city and beyond. Amenities include restaurants, a leisure centre and gym, a sky-garden and a double-height roof-terrace.
