Weatherite Improves Environment At More John Lewis Stores


Weatherite Building Services has installed new environmentally friendly air conditioning systems at two John Lewis department stores in Norwich and High Wycombe.

Following the success of similar work they carried out at other John Lewis stores, Weatherite was once again appointed Principle Contractor for the projects, which together were worth a total of almost £400,000.

At both stores the work involved the recovery, design, supply and installation of new air conditioning units to replace the previous units that used the R22 refrigerant, making them environmentally unsound.

At the Norwich store, Weatherite installed Hitachi air cooled chillers, Daikin DX split units and Airedale condensing units. At High Wycombe they installed Hitachi air cooled chillers and Daikin DX split units.

Mike Turton, sales director, Weatherite, comments: “We are delighted to continue to support John Lewis with their five year programme to upgrade air conditioning within their stores, and in particular to be appointed the role of Principle Contractor.

“Having now successfully upgraded the air conditioning systems at six of their stores, we have built a strong relationship with John Lewis and look forward to working with them again in the near future.”

Graham Mappledoram, Central Specialist (HVAC) at John Lewis, adds: “Once again, we are delighted with the work that Weatherite have done for us. Customers and staff at both Norwich and High Wycombe have commented on the difference the new air conditioning has made to the stores.”

WBS is part of the £40m Weatherite Group, one of the UK’s leaders in air conditioning and air handling equipment.

More recently WBS has expanded its activities to cover other sectors of the building services market including heating, ventilation, boiler house refurbishment, water, control systems and electrics as well as all aspects of commercial air conditioning systems, offering a single source choice to its customers which includes full project management, design, installation and commissioning capabilities.
