Boston United Football Club’s new Jakemans Community Stadium west stand has been equipped with a high efficiency premier air conditioning system by Toshiba.
The Super Heat Recovery Multi (SHRM-e) variable refrigerant flow (VRF) solution, installed by Formost Air Conditioning Ltd, will provide outstanding indoor comfort for fans and visitors as part of the brand-new ground and stadium development.
Facilities at the club’s new stadium include a banqueting room, lounge, boardroom, community hub and four hospitality suites, all air conditioned to the highest standards with a combination of Toshiba SHRM-e systems linked to the company’s VN heat recovery fresh air ventilation units.
The VN systems harness energy from exhaust air to pre-condition incoming fresh air, integrating with the heat recovery VRF system to create a total building solution. Use of the VN units reduces the cooling and heating load and the overall size of the air conditioning system required, saving energy and reducing capital costs.
Boston United chairman David Newton said:
The aim is to give our fans the best ground we can. Providing a comfortable indoor climate for visitors and their guests is a key part of the experience.
The Pilgrims’ new stadium is being built to Football League standards with increased capacity of over 5,000. It will provide a range of community, sports, education and training programs, plus in due course a sports hall and an all-weather 3G pitch for community use.
The new Jakemans Community Stadium is part of the area’s wider Quadrant development, which includes housing, a hotel, petrol station, a care home and retail units.
