Project Description

CASE STUDY

The Florrie, Liverpool

Project

Dyer Environmental Controls were delighted to have been included on a restoration shortlist in conjunction with other specialists to bring The Florrie in Liverpool back to life. After years of neglect the Grade II listed Victorian Florence Institute received a full restoration programme.

System

Working with A&B Engineering who provided the replica windows, Dyer were able to automate the opening of the windows using the unique Solis – a solar powered chain drive. Completely wireless, Solis was the only solution – simple and effective. Natural ventilation at the push of a button.

The ground floor windows are operated via remote control with the windows on the 1st floor operated via a Building Management System.

Due to the Grade II building status, additional surface cabling was not allowed, therefore Dyer’s wireless Solis chain drive was perfect for the job.

Building occupants can once again enjoy the facilities that Florrie has to offer and more importantly in the comfort of a naturally ventilated environment.
