Panasonic dials up the energy savings in student loans company call centre
When Capita, the business process management and outsourcing giant, decided to establish their new call centre in the Lingfield Point business park, it was important sustainability play a key role in the refurbishment. This included the heating and cooling system, for which M&E consultants, Quinnross specified an energy efficient Panasonic system with advanced control technology.
Lingfield Point serves as a centre of business and innovation in the North West. Capita opted to convert one of the original large warehouses to a modern, high-tech call centre accommodating 500 staff. Quinnross had already installed a GHP system in another project at Lingfield Point with great success, so when it came to designing a heating and cooling system for the Capita call centre, the choice was easy. Working with distributor ESS, Quinnross specified the Panasonic ECO G 3 way system, which would take advantage of the abundant gas supply on the site, and is renowned for its energy efficiency and ease of installation.
“We completed a fantastic project with the Panasonic GHP system a few years ago and, with Capita’s focus on sustainability, we thought this was a great opportunity to use the technology again,” says Derek Quinlan of Quinnross. “Panasonic’s ECO G gas heat pump really ticks all the boxes for us, it’s easy to install, very powerful and is also really efficient.”
Panasonic’s intelligent touch screen controller, the CZ-256ESMC2, was also installed to interface with the site’s BMS.
