The Dean Clough site covers 22 acres, originally 1 million sq.ft. of floor area, stretching over half a mile from one end to the other, consisting of 16 significant buildings.
These magnificent Grade II listed Victorian mills were constructed between 1840 and 1870 by the Crossley family who founded their Crossley Carpet empire here in 1822, with the buildings being built with the stone quarried from, and adopting the name of, the valley in which they sit (Dean and Clough being old English words respectively meaning valley and ravine).
With the decline of the business culminating in the closure of these mills as a manufacturing base in 1982.
In 2015 Heatworks was awarded the contract to install Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Electrical Services to A, B, and F Mills on the site. The installation was designed to allow modern equipment and technology to blend in and compliment the original features of the building.
Daikin VRF system has been installed throughout the seven floors of the building providing heating and cooling to the open plan office spaces, Ground Floor Reception Area and Comms Room.
The units are controlled by handheld tablets located on each floor of the service riser which are connected to the main Daikin Intelligent Touch Manager (ITM) controller.
Daikin HRU’s unit located in the Loading Bay provides fresh air to fan coil units in the Ground Floor open plan office and Reception Area where no window ventilation occurs.
