Project Type – Project one 3 x open plan Classrooms / Project 2 Sports Hall

Date – August 2023

Single industrial air conditioning unit in a school

Project Overview

MAC were called in to look at supplying air conditioning initially for a large class area open plan divided into three areas.

We undertook a site survey, which lead to a quotation to supply and install a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries 10KW cassettes ceiling mounted split system x 3

On the survey we found that the ceiling was open and approx. 10m heigh and the design of the building meant the roof sloped to the rear courtyard where the wall was predominantly windows leaving a challenge of hanging the units also finding suitable route to the condensers.


We carried out the work during the May spring bank holiday.

The system was successfully installed from a scaffold tower with the units being hung directly from the roof structure and the pipe work running down the roof beams and exiting low level below the windows.

The system was pressure tested and fully commissioned, work was carried during half term

The condensers are floor mounted with anti-vandal cages to protect the children.

Additional Sports Hall Project

Following on from the successful installation in the classrooms We were asked to also carry out an installation in the sports hall in the six-week summer holiday to supply and install a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries 10KW cassettes ceiling mounted split system x 2.

Again as in Project 1 we installed the 2 systems as per the original installation methodology.

New power supplies were installed by our electrician direct from the mains distribution board for all 5 systems and signed off accordingly


The customer has benefited from our 3 Diamond approved installer status and therefore 7 years warranty.
