The Project.

Previously the home of the Department of Work and Pensions in Inverness, this tired four story office block in the city centre was reinvigorated by the client, Axcel Hospitality, who looked to transform the building into a 76-bedroom hotel. 

Ri Cruden were responsible for all plumbing and mechanical requirements within the development of the Axcel Hotel, including supply and installation of all pipework and ventilation systems. 

The Hotel has transformed a tired four story office block in the city centre.

The Works.

We supplied and installed a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system with mechanical ventilation, linked to a Building Management System (BMS) in cooperation with experts at Elgin Refrigeration and CC North Ltd respectively, to enable a supply of fresh and tempered air throughout the building. The VRF system used the minimum amount of refrigerant to meet demand, making the system far more efficient while the BMS allowed precise heating and cooling across different zones of the building. 

All sanitary ware was supplied and installed by Ri Cruden, with above ground drainage and hot & cold water pipework connected to each of the newly formed bathrooms, as well as the kitchen and bar areas.
