Air conditioning at Waterford Crystal showroom (Ireland)
Creating a relaxing space for visitors at Waterford showroom
Elegant comfort – a discreet air conditioning solution
Since the early 1950s, House of Waterford Crystal has been producing exceptional crystal pieces using traditional methods. The attention to detail of the artisans can be seen in each individual piece.
The new showroom located at Waterford is an important space to display their work and let visitors from all over the world appreciate the pieces in a comfortable environment.
Challenge to create a stunning showroom
Sirus Building Energy Solutions worked with Waterford Crystal to find a solution that fit their need to create a peaceful and elegant space for visitors to browse the crystal pieces.
The system needed to be reliable and powerful enough to cope with large number of visitors in the show room at the same time, while maintaining a calm and quiet environment for them to enjoy the unique experience.
Aside from the specific requirements, they also had to cope with a number of different systems and short time scales.
A solution to fit different situations
Using the Hitachi Hi ToolKit software, Sirus provided Waterford with the full system design so they could very quickly see how everything fitted together.
The Hitachi system provides fresh air at an optimal temperature for a calm and relaxed environment.
Benefits of the new air conditioning system
With an energy efficient and reliable system from Hitachi, Waterford Crystal has a showroom with an easy to maintain and operate system that requires little attention from the staff, giving them more time to take care of their visitors and show their unique pieces of crystals in a comfortable environment.
About The House of Waterford Crystal
Waterford Crystal has become almost a synonym for the finest quality crystal sought after by collectors and connoisseurs around the world. Each piece of Waterford is watermarked with the word “Waterford”, a signature indicating the name of the finest crystal in the world.
The company of Waterford was first established in 1783 on land adjacent to Merchants' Quay in the heart of the Irish harbor town of Waterford. Its founders were two brothers, William and George Penrose, who were important developers and principal exporters in the city. Their vision was to “create the finest quality crystal for drinking vessels and objects of beauty for the home”. More than two hundred years later, the reputation they established for creating glass of unsurpassed beauty and quality has transcended the intervening centuries.
