Topshop & Travelodge Join Forces

When Travelodge opened a combined store and hotel development with Topshop in Edinburgh’s retail heartland in a UK first, Air Design were contacted to supply the heat recovery equipment.

The former stockroom area above Topshop’s flagship store in Edinburgh, which is housed in Scotland’s very first steel frame grade ll listed building on the corner of Princes Street, was converted into a 96 room bespoke hotel by building support services specialist Arthur McKay. Rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows allowing guests spectacular, unhindered, views of Edinburgh.

The bespoke double decked HRU designed and installed on this project, offers a cost effective, fast-build alternative to welded steel frame units, principally designed for internal mounting arrangements where space is at a premium.

“Time is money in both the retail and hospitality sectors so speed of supply was an important factor, we were able to offer a swift and efficient service, ensuring there were no hold ups to the project schedule.”

All of Air Design’s bespoke product range can be fitted with direct-driven backward curved plug fans and EC Fans in compliance with Part L of the new building regulations.
