Plant room installation and pipework – Royal Chelsea Hospital

Having carried out the enabling works for both the East and West Plant Rooms at the Royal Chelsea Hospital, the CH team moved on to carry out the installation of three Worcester GB162 boilers, supplied with frames and low loss headers to each plant room.

Due to the age of the existing system and a need to prolong the life of the new boilers, a decision was made to install a Plate Heat Exchanger, which offers hydraulic separation between the new and old system whilst allowing the necessary heat transfer to take place.

The team was also tasked with finding a suitable location for the associated Vessels and Pressurisation Units within some very compact/tight spaces. Looking at the images below, you’ll be able to see that usable space is at a premium; as such, a great deal of time was spent in consultation with the client over what would be the best and most acceptable use of the space we had.

This was by no means the largest project we have undertaken but the space constraints proved challenging – the team worked efficiently to get the job done and we are pleased with the end result.  

Mill Farm Hounslow

CH Systems has been on site for eight weeks, working on a new build project in Hounslow. We’re currently at 70 per cent completion but thought it a good time to log our progress, and give a shout out to the quality materials that are making this a trouble-free installation:

The development comprises of 24 timber frame flats and houses, each incorporating a NuAire MVHR, providing both fresh air and extraction, as well as Worcester boilers, providing both heating and hot water. All the pipework for the heating and domestic services has been installed in Uponor PEx and all the soil and waste pipework has been installed in Geberit HDPE.

Using materials we trust, through experience, ensures the longevity that we require on the systems we produce. The team is looking forward to the end of yet another successful job.
