Since forming in 1878, Everton Football Club has been at the forefront of English soccer.
Their current stadium Goodison Park has had to be adapted in current times to follow a shift in expectations of not only supporters, but to encompass the growing corporate clientele that visit stadiums such as this for a variety of meetings and seminars.
In the close season of 2005 at the end of May the club engaged a team of specialists to upgrade the executive boxes and also relay the pitch before the new season kick off in the beginning of August.
Dovebrace Ltd designed a cost effective solution of a single heat recovery VRF system that was to overcome several key concerns of the clients.
Each of the 17 executive boxes were to have individual control over their comfort conditions by means of a wall mounted simplified LCD controller. These were integrated to a central controller to allow adjustments to be made remotely and time clocking facility to be utilized, minimizing energy consumption.
Consideration given to the client’s requirements led us to install the units outside each box and duct the condition air into each space not only to improve aesthetics and reduce noise, but to allow emergency repairs to be conducted outside the rooms with no disturbance to the occupants.
With free space at a premium and no obvious external locations available, Dovebrace surveyed the stadium complex and installed the heat recovery VRF condensing unit internally and ducted exhaust air to outside which provided another solution to the clients delight.
This project was delivered on budget, within the 9 week program and provided an energy efficient solution to the clients brief.
Definitely encompassing the Everton FC motto: ‘Nothing but the best is good enough’
