In a previous post, we announced that ATC were awarded Project Of The Year Award 2019 from the Electrical Industries Federation Of Ireland (EIFI) at the ceremony which took place in Dublin during September 2019.

Commenting on the award, Declan Donnelly, Sales Manager, ATC said: “I was delighted to accept this award on behalf of everyone involved from the projects team in ATC. It really is a great project to be part of and showcases some of the most advanced WIFI controlled electrical heaters along with the latest technology.”.

We’ve got some super photos from the day to share with you but thought it worth sharing a little with you on just why this particular site was chosen for the superb project that it was.

The Brief

300 student en-suite accommodation rooms with a gym, recreation areas and roof gardens constructed within 17 different properties in a location in Dublin City Centre/.

The requirements laid out for the project were as follows;

Controllability – accurate and easy to use controls.

Efficiency – running costs to be minimised.

Future-proofed – WIFI enabled.

Aesthetics – the product had to fit in with the architect’s design.

LST heaters would be required for some zones.

The Sunray RF 

In selecting the Sunray RF heater the client was able to reduce the overall cost of the project while at the same time gaining a more efficient and controllable heating system.

ATC had to work closely with all the stakeholders to ensure a successful solution on the heating requirements.

These included the Client – Scape Housing, main contractor- John Paul Construction, Elec & Mech Engineers JV Tierney, The Architect- JSA, the Mechical contractor-Tritech, the electrical wholesaler-Eastern Ballymount and the Pod company in Poland-Domzcar.

The product, the Sunray RF Electric Thermal Radiator is;

  • Simple to Program and operate
  • Large easy to Read TFT LCD Display
  • Operating Modes – Eco – Comfort – Frost Protection

And the feedback;

“We had to work very closely with ATC in order to bring this part of the project in on budget and on time. As we had very specific requirements it was great that ATC had the product range, knowledge and flexibility to meet our demands. We were very impressed when we visited the showroom and saw the product options on working display” Iain Fitzsimons-Designer engineer, John Paul Construction

“Our client has ongoing issues with LPHW radiators in other properties. Mainly, they are hard to control which leads to overheating in certain areas. With that in mind we were asked to look at electric heating for this site. We found that going electric offered certain advantages, including energy efficiency, installation cost savings and controllability. We proposed the Sunray RF heater as it has the most advanced control system and offers the client complete control over the usage of each radiator.

For the client, noise was a major factor when deciding on ventilation. Most bathroom fans are not designed to work under high pressure. ATC worked with us to supply a fan that could meet the pressure required at a noise level that was deemed acceptable.

In both cases we found ATC easy to work with and very helpful in assisting us to specify the heating and ventilation on this project”- Patrick O ‘Sullivan Project Engineer, JV Tierney

Overall the project in a high profile location adjacent to one of Dublin’s most established colleges was such a success that we received a much coveted award for it, EIFI Project Of The Year 2019 – Aungier Street Student Accommodation.
