Hattersley Valves Control Ricoh Arena

The recently completed Ricoh Arena, home of Coventry City FC, has Hattersley valves at the heart of the HVAC systems.

As well as providing a new 32,000 capacity stadium for Coventry City that includes 72 executive boxes, bars and restaurants, there is much more to this vast 72.5 acre site. Situated alongside the M6 at junction 3, the complex also includes a 65-bed hotel, 6,000 square metres of exhibition/concert hall, 3,000 square metres for conference and banqueting, 8,000 square metres of office accommodation and a 9,000 square metre casino as well as a 2,000 space car park.

The entire construction programme began in January 2004 and the football stadium was ready to host the first match of the new season in August 2005. During that time Building Services contractors Haden Young designed and installed services using a range of Hattersley valves including butterfly, Autoflow, fan coil compact hook-up units and commissioning sets. These are controlling the heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems around the football stadium including the hospitality boxes and the hotel complex. Final elements of the entire construction programme were completed in early 2006.
