  • all the LTHW & CHW pipework on this system which was Geberit stainless steel mapress
  • 3no Plant rooms incorporating the 2no Viessmann boilers
  • 2no Beta Echos chillers and 2no Barkell air handling units
  • Over 500meters of welded gas pipe serving 9no Reznor warm air unit heaters
  • 2no Vaillant air source heat pumps

All of the Domestic water services pipework was installed in Geberit Copper Mapress with all the valves on the project manufactured by Crane.

We recently achieved Prime Cost (PC) on this project, which makes it the longest running and largest project we have carried out to date.
