DMA Group to oversee major HVAC upgrade at North Kent College

The property maintenance specialist has been appointed by North Kent College to manage and deliver a major upgrade of its heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems at its Tonbridge campus.

The first phase of the project, a 10-week programme of on-site works, has already seen DMA complete refrigerant air conditioning works involving the replacement of 13 of the 19 existing external condensers. DMA has also replaced 15 of the 21 existing internal BS Boxes, which allows indoor units connected to those externally to select either cooling or heating.

North Kent College is a well-established Further and Higher Education college, offering numerous courses and qualifications from GCSEs and A-levels through to vocational routes, work-based apprenticeships, and undergraduate degree programmes. Its Tonbridge campus features state-of-the-art facilities, including a 300-seat theatre, fine art, fashion, graphic design and photography studios, television and radio studios, music recording studios, professional training and demonstration kitchens as well as purpose-built motor vehicle engineering and construction workshops.

John Doran, Facilities Manager North Kent College Tonbridge campus, commented: “It was important for us to partner with an organisation that demonstrated a clear understanding of our requirements, was one that we could trust, and one that came with a proven track record in the education space. DMA ticked all of those boxes and has shown a clear transparency with us from the onset.”

The College joins a long list of schools, colleges, and universities that have appointed DMA to provide maintenance and engineering projects.
