At Kimpton, we’ve been delivering M&E projects and HVAC services across the Liverpool City Region since 1963.
In fact, we’ve been delivering them all over the north west, the UK and across the world, with projects as far afield as Canterbury to the very North of Scotland.
It’s because we have always been innovators in HVAC, and this thinking continues to the present day.
For many, Heat Pump technology is new, but we began designing and installing heat pumps in 1974 when we helped Walkers Crisps and Golden Wonder solve the problem of how to make the potatoes in their stores last longer. By dramatically changing the length of time potatoes could be stored, it allowed them to buy potatoes when they were plentiful and revolutionised the UK’s potato crisp industry.
This culture of innovation has led to the delivery of two other UK firsts in renewable technology – we designed and installed the UK’s first water source heat pumps in open sea at Plas Newydd, Anglesey for the National Trust and installed one of the UK’s first Transpired Solar Collectors with TATA steel at the SBEC Building on Deeside.
And we have been at the heart of the amazing rebirth and regeneration of Liverpool, working on major projects across the region.
We installed the entire water and gas pipe network at Liverpool One, a 1.65million sq ft open-air complex of 170 stores, bars and restaurants, cinema and hotel – one of Europe’s leading retail and leisure destinations.
We’ve worked with some of the region’s largest employers for over 50 years across every sector including Pharmaceuticals, Manufacturing, Food Processing including Unilever, Walkers, Bristol Myers Squib, Jaguar Land Rover, KK Fine Foods, Kimberley Clarke, Airbus and Daresbury Laboratories.
We installed the heating at Arrowe Park Hospital and the Air Conditioning at The Countess of Chester when they were first built, have recently been upgrading them and are approved suppliers to every Merseyside NHS trust.
We work with ALL of the City’s universities across every campus in teaching, lab, office and laboratory spaces. We’ve delivered major student accommodation projects across Liverpool and continue to maintain the University of Liverpool’s largest purpose-built accommodation buildings.
We live and breathe this amazing city. We are Kimpton. We have history.
Working across the UK
But we’re not just Liverpool, we work across the UK on some of the biggest new build and refurbishment projects too.
For many years we have been providing the design, supply and installation of mechanical and electrical services to the increasing number of purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) and Build to Rent (BTR) projects that have been constructed in recent years, to house the growing number of renters looking for new, quality yet affordable accommodation close to where they work or study.
Primarily we work with the main contractor to deliver a range of high-performance mechanical, electrical heating and ventilation services designed to provide high levels of performance and comfort with low ongoing running and maintenance costs.
We’re now approaching 15,000 beds delivered, across 33 individual schemes, ranging from Canterbury to Bangor, Chester, Leeds, London, Leicester and Sheffield.
Increasingly, repurposing existing buildings is becoming the most sensible economic option. Brown field over green every time. City centres are changing and what may have been office or secondary retail space before, now makes perfect residential space for the future and the changing demands of a city.
So, whatever your project, with over 60 years of experience in M&E, Ventilation & Air Conditioning installation and maintenance, no-one knows HVAC better than we do.
