TKS GmbH the market leader for complex refurbishments in the European brand hotel industry. The company is also well known for paying close attention to sustainability when designing solutions for clients. So, it is no surprise that they required the same attention to sustainability in the design of the HVAC system for their building.
Heating, cooling and ventilation in a single total solution
Daikin convinced TKS with a total solution approach, perfectly integrating technologies for commercial applications and technologies from the residential portfolio.
Two air to water heat pumps, one per wing of the building, were installed on the ceiling to ensure there is a perfect working environment at TKS offices. While a Daikini D-AHU Modular P system with an air flow up to 3,650m3, in compbbination with two VAM series ventilation systems with heat recovery the providing air flow up to 650 m3, were installed to provide the building with ventilation, and then with the correct air exchange and air filtration needed to create a healthy and comfortable work environment.

The necessary cooling for the server room, then, is provided by two Daikin split units providing air conditioning through a indoor unit from the Perfera series.
The whole system is controlled by Daikin’s Intelligent Touch Manager (iTM) with WAGO interface. The user-friendly control system ensures further energy savings thanks to intelligent energy management, also ensuring trouble-free maintenance. The WAGO interface also allows Daikin to control third-party technology such as lighting, pumps and fans with the iTM.
Energy efficiency among the main goals
All decisions made in terms of building design as well as Air Conditioning system design, were based on the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV from 2016) requirements. So, efficiency was among the most important goals in this HVAC project, both to provide the building with technology that can generate savings on operative costs, but also to minimize the impact the TKS headquarters will have on the environment.
