Long-term installation projects are intense, typically requiring round-the-clock attention and the ability to deliver and adapt ideas when plans are sometimes curtailed by building complications – but the end result is always deeply rewarding.

The team at CH was commissioned for an entire penthouse refurbishment in an occupied building. The project took 12 months to complete and the final look is a modern, sophisticated apartment that emanates professionalism. Check it out:

Much of the work we did is hidden by the slick interior of the apartment but is essential to the comfort and overall livability of the residence. Part of the installation work included refurbishment of the: underfloor heating and AC system; domestic hot and cold plus low temperature hot water (LTHW) and gas systems; above ground soil and waste systems as well as the installation of Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware.

The boiler plant required a specialist flue due to its location and a new gas pipe was installed running from the riser into the demise, with Quooker taps fitted throughout. All pipework was installed in copper with Yorkshire Fittings and all soil and waste pipework is in Terrain. The installed brassware is high end Waterworks and the WC frames are Geberit.

The penthouse includes some killer features that we enjoyed perfecting: two gas fires and an outside barbecue (all feeding off the main supply) plus a steam room and sauna – with all control valves, including solenoids, fitted to comply.

We enjoyed the magnitude and dynamic nature of this project, and the team at CH is hugely pleased with the end result.

Aldi RDC – Isle of Sheppey

CH Systems secured the pipework installation contract on the new Aldi Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) in June 2017. The new £50m RDC has created around 400 new jobs and measures more than 40,000 square foot. Have a look at the below pics for an idea of the scale of the project:

Our scope of work included:

  • 136no Fan coil units on a 4 pipe system
  • 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
  • 1no GRP water tank and pumps.

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

Once again we received fantastic support from our suppliers and the engineers involved in the project proved why they are an invaluable part of our team.

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