When installing an air conditioning system, most clients need to account for a considerable amount of outdoor space to accommodate a bulky condenser unit. But finding the right amount of space is a difficult task for stores or businesses in built-up areas.
A lack of space was also the issue restaurant chain Leon's had to overcome to find the right air conditioning system for its new Fenchurch Street restaurant. Based in London's West End, the restaurant needed to find the right system to deliver comfort and energy efficiency in a space-saving design.
"To install such a discreet and highly efficient air conditioning system will hugely benefit many high street retailers across the UK, but particularly in London, where sourcing outside space for a condenser can be challenging."
- Gary Piper, Synecore HVAC Manager
Keep looking, you'll never find me
Synecore, a trusted installation partner in the project, selected our VRV i-series as the best choice for the new property. An outdoor system installed entirely indoors with only grilles visible from the outside, VRV IV i-series is a total climate control solution for buildings that are tight on space.
For this project, Synecore chose to install two 5 HP VRV IV i-series: one for the restaurant area and another for the kitchen. Because the heat exchanger and compressor are separate, installing the system was a simple and cost-effective process, and avoided additional renovation projects such as a rooftop installation, sound insulation or adding more pipework.
Separating the heat exchanger and compressor also meant the system is very discreet and easily blends into the property's existing framework.
Revolutionising air conditioning
The results of this VRV IV i-series installation did not disappoint. Aesthetically pleasing, practical, energy- efficient and easy to install, VRV IV i-series is the full package, and allowed Leon's to open its new restaurant sooner than expected. The installation also showed how our VRV IV i-series is a great solution for other high street retailers in Europe that need a climate solution with a space-saving design.
Our other cases
To help Crystal Tower maximise its energy efficiency, we planned to combine the power of air-cooled VRV, water-cooled VRV and chillers to deliver an all-in-one climate control solution.
Torre Serenissima | VRV Air Conditioning System Installation
Torre Serenissima had a VRV Air Conditioning System Installation. Daikin equipped with an outdated R-22 refrigerant system, we gave the Torre Serenissima a full upgrade to deliver more energy efficiency and comfort.
The Bloomsbury Hotel | VRV-Q system Installation
The VRVIII Heat Recovery System from Daikin was selected for its supremely low energy consumption and ability to off er massive savings in comparison with similar systems
M&E contractor, Synecore, installed its first ‘invisible’ HVAC system, the Daikin VRV IV i-Series at Leon Restaurant, central London, to overcome tight space restrictions and achieve maximum climate control efficiency.
In its ongoing search to optimise running costs, JBC conducted a site trial with Daikin designed to evaluate the gains generated by Variable Refrigerant Temperature (VRT) technology.
Prezzemolo & Vitale - Palermo
For the new Prezzemolo & Vitale store in the historical centre of Palermo, a system was installed consisting of Daikin Zeas and VRV units.
Pick 'n Pay Panorama Upgrade
The Daikin condensing unit was integrated, via Modbus, to the Eliwell controls supplied by Keystar. This allowed for remote access and monitoring of the plant, giving the owners and the contractors peace of mind.
M&M Music Academy in Cape Town
Together with Coastal Air Consulting and Consultmech engineers, we recently installed two 55kW rooftop package units at M&M Music Academy in Cape Town. We customized the units in order to compress the noise levels of the fan, while still maintaining the necessary size

Daikin supplies Taaibosch Winery in Stellenbosch with highly efficient, reliable and precise air conditioning solutions that provide them with complete temperature control in their cold room and offices.
The New Chiller at Slanghoek Winery
The new chiller, the largest Chinese Inverter Daikin South Africa has delivered to date, was a replacement of the one installed in the 1990s (also by Daikin). This inverter model was selected due to its high efficiency and low power consumption.
Kapama River Lodge
Daikin South Africa had a major project with Kapama Private Game Reserve in Limpopo Province, which spans a large region between the northern Drakensberg mountains and the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa's north-east.
In October 2021, Daikin’s South African team did a major installation for one of the biggest independent furnishing retailers in Western Cape.
Helderberg Nature Reserve
Daikin South Africa recently embarked on a fantastic project for the Helderberg Nature Reserve. In partnership with The Construction Company, NWE Consulting Engineers, and Coldfact Projects.
