Hotel in Reading, Reading

Gelidus provide backup extract system to the main kitchen.

The Details

The Requirement

Gelidus have supported Voco Reading (previously Millennium Madejski Hotel) with the planned maintenance of their air conditioning and ventilation systems since 2017. On a routine visit, we identified a pressure point in the well-furnished kitchen of their award-winning Cilantro restaurant, which relied on a single extract system to maintain the ventilation and gas supply to their entire commercial kitchen space.

The Solution

A survey visit was carried out that found sufficient roof space to site a second extract air-handling unit, and a proposal was submitted to supply and install this backup unit to create a reliable and comfortable kitchen environment. 

The works included the installation of the power supply and connection of the new air-handling unit onto the hotels Building Management System to provide convenient control and visibility of its status for the maintenance team.

The simultaneous use of both units not only provides a more efficient working space for the Cilantro team, but a backup unit that provides continual reassurance going forward.

  • Improved Traffic Flow 94% 94%
  • Improved Stormwater Management 65% 65%
  • Annual Cost Savings 37% 37%
  • Increased Parking Area 60% 60%
