A dated boiler room installed in the 1970’s by the old GLC. Parts were obsolete for the ageing boilers and plant. The plant room was in dire need or modernisation.
The renovation project involved various tasks aimed at enhancing the boiler room. It includes repairing the existing floor, as well as painting the walls, floor, and ceiling to give the space an updated look. Additionally, the installation of 2 new high efficiency condensing boilers and stainless steel flues was carried out, ensuring improved efficiency and durability. The project also encompasses the installation of necessary pipework and fittings, guaranteeing a seamless and reliable system. To optimise functionality, automatic controls and a distribution panel were installed, enabling efficient management and regulation of the boiler room.View 360 tour
A boiler room which has had several updates and adaptions over the years. This boiler room has seen the transition from old coal boilers to oil boilers to gas boilers over the years. In Its latest incarnation some of the plant was 40 years old, relatively young to some of the pipes in the plant room that were 100 years old! The boilers it was operating were 25 years old, modern by these comparisons. These boilers were decommissioned along with all plant and the existing pipework cut out as far as possible. This was of course after a thorough asbestos decontamination phase to remove all asbestos from the area. Before any new plant was installed the room was cut in to two to form our new plant room and a new cycle store with storage area. Floors were screeded, walls repaired, the rooms were painted top to bottom and new cupboards installed in the storeroom. The object here was to recover as much “dead space” as possible – the old boiler room occupied a large area and was an inefficient use of space.
The new plant room now comprises of 3 new A rated condensing gas boilers with a new flue system discharging high above the roof of the building. Plate heat exchangers were used to separate the old heating system from the new boilers. The latest technology in pumps were utilised to contribute to the overall energy efficiency of the system. The new plant and their energy saving systems have had a profound impact on the energy rating of the building. The super-efficient plant combined with the latest BMS systems, thick insulation and water treatment has resulted in an ultra-efficient system which, in turn, has significantly lowered the energy bills for the residents. As well as the modern boiler room the newly renovated storeroom has provided the residents with an extra room which would of otherwise been impossible.View 360 tour
We also generated hot water to the property while the project was being completed.
Decommissioning and removal of redundant boiler plant, pipework & redundant plant within existing boiler room Installation of 3 new condensing boilers c/w fully modulating burners for use with natural gas. Pipework insulation within boiler room. Automatic controls and control/distribution panel including distribution, switches, lamps, detectors and equipment control valves. Installation of 2 stainless steel calorifiers. Painting of plantroom
The old boiler room occupied two rooms and was deigned and built in the 1980’s. The plant was removed and a complete new boiler made in half the original space. This allowed the other half to be turned in to a reception area and washroom facilities.
The boiler room was started afresh from a bare room. Careful consideration and planning was involved to make sure all plant and pipework went in to the available space. Three 115 KW Remeha boilers provide the heating, and the hot water is stored in 2 large calorifiers.
All pipework and flues were fabricated on site and a bespoke control panel, was installed to run the boilers, pumps and valves via a TREND BMS system.View 360 tour
This project involved among other things; the removal of two ageing boilers and cleaning of the boiler room, new boilers installed and a sealed system conversion. The design and fabrication of new pipework, a new custom built electrical control panel. Power flushing of the entire heating system, dosing of the system with inhibitor.
The system was commissioned and is now running quieter, more efficiently and with greatly improved flow around the building.
A service visit comprising of 3 boiler rooms, 3 gas meters and their pipework which has to be tested and certificated.
A gym hall with radiant overhead gas heaters and various gas appliances. There are also 2 gas fired water heaters, expansion vessels, pressurisation unit, and various pumps which are all maintained by ourselves.
Removal of an ageing calorifier and installation of a new instantaneous hot water plate heat exchanger (PHE). This plate heat exchanger provides hot water for 12 flats with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms per residency.
The plate heat exchanger removes the need for a storage vessel and frees up space within the boiler room, not to mention the reduced running costs, due to the high efficiency of the PHE.
This project involved laying underfloor heating for the clubhouse extension. The heat is supplied to the room via approximately 700 meters of pipes buried under a concrete screed.
The pipes are fed from a manifold which in turn is supplied from the main boilers. The temperature is regulated by a remote room thermostat linked to a pump and motorised valve.
Underfloor heating was used to allow maximum seating capacity capacity and less visual impact for the customers at Essendon Country Club.
