Crown House Technologies will form part of the construction team delivering the £1.3 billion cultural regeneration of London Olympia. The announcement follows confirmation that Yoo Capital and Deutsche Finance International (DFI) have signed the main works contract, worth over £600m with construction partner Laing O'Rourke.
For the past year, CHt has been part of the team successfully delivering complex enabling works, including a new energy centre, which is nearing completion. The energy centre will provide heating for the whole development and cooling for the exhibition areas.
The company has used its advanced digital engineering capabilities to ensure that the most efficient designs were implemented and by concentrating on the detailed coordination they have ensured that all of this is neatly squeezed within the restricted energy centre footprint.
The output from this design is a modern styled five storey self-contained energy centre containing chillers, boilers, CHP engines, and all the associated pump sets, pipework, ancillaries and electrical switchgear. Together it will be able to provide power for a mixture of exhibition space, commercial buildings, hotels, hospitality and leisure spaces requiring a combined total energy usage requirement of circa 28,260kW (chillers – 12,000kW, boilers – 15,000kW & CHP –12,60kW).
