Client: Chambers and Partners
Year Completed: 2017
Duration: 12 weeks
We were contacted by the senior maintenance engineer and Chambers and Partners to look into the ongoing problems and the current versa temp central heating system which was continuously failing and only producing 35 degree celcius heat output throughput he building.
There was also ongoing hot water problem where the correct temperature was not being reached and staff complaints of a cold building.
We were asked to inspect and offer a solution to their ongoing issues then undertake investigative work by carrying various temperature and pressure tests throughout the system. We carried out asbestos tests, water pressure, gas meter sizing and pipe sizing to ensure the new boilers would have the correct flow rate.
We also carried out electrical tests. This system was designed in excess of 30 years ago and worked on a reverse return pipework which is very rare.
Boilers were failing, there was constant problems due to the boilers age. We were asked by the managing agents for the building to design a new boiler package which would be more efficient and ERP compliant as energy efficiency was strongly specified.
Work Carried Out
We designed and build a new A rated plant room insuring tenants would never run out of hot water and they would have sufficient central heating throughout the building.
Each unit can be controlled individually without needing to heat the whole building as before. Rapid heat up time of 2 – 5 minutes. A rated system throughout the building with local controls.
The complete system was installed and previous system removed within 12 weeks
