Commercial Case Studies

Care Homes

This large care home group was looking to renew and update their heating systems in a number of their homes throughout the country with the goal of reducing their carbon footprint. This project was privately funded by a French-funding company. We designed and supplied ground source system to replace ageing gas boilers that were breaking down. Ground source technology was the preferred technology. Due to a lack of space, a vertical loop was installed using a series of boreholes. The ground loop was connected to Stiebel Eltron WPE 87kw units.

For these properties we installed commercial ground source heat pump systems.

Porth Y Swynt – National Trust – Aberdaron

Port Y Swynt is a National Trust visitor centre nestled in the heart of Aberdaron. The site consists of a visitor centre and four apartments which are available to rent. There was an existing Ground Source Heat pump on site providing heating and hot water to the visitor’s centre. The National Trust wanted a larger heat pump to include the heating and hot water for the apartments. After meeting with the NT, our engineers calculated that a Nibe heat pump would provide the energy for underfloor heating and hot water in the visitors centre. By using Heat Interface Units each apartment could be provided with individual heating and hot water, all while being good for the environment and cost effective to run. The system has proved very reliable, with individual heating and hot water for each apartment.

Heat Pump: 1x Nibe F1345. Source: 7 boreholes 125m deep. Heat Distribution: Underfloor and radiators

Dawson’s Square – Leeds

Dawson’s Square, the old Green Flag Office building, was converted to 140 studio, one and two bedroom apartments across two striking buildings, Park House and Greenleigh Court. The development offers innovate living accommodation that allows residents to enjoy all the amenities the area has to offer without compromising on space and specification. The developer was desperate for a green solution for heating and hot water. After meetings with our client, our engineers calculated that six heat pumps would provide the energy for underfloor heating and hot water use to each apartment. This would work through Heat Interface Units in each apartment. This was a very new concept at the time. The system is monitored 24/7 and is working very efficiently.

Heat Pump: 6x Nibe F1345. Source: 47 boreholes 120m deep. Heat Distribution: Underfloor.
