Remeha reliability wins out at Gloucestershire School

Sir William Romney’s School in Tetbury has upgraded its heating and hot water system with Remeha high efficiency condensing boilers and a Remeha unvented hot water cylinder.

When the existing boilers failed to function at the Gloucestershire Academy, swift action was required to restore the heating and hot water service before the start of the new term.

The decision was taken to replace and upgrade all the existing plant and ancillary equipment. Gloucester-based Hewer Facilities Management Ltd successfully secured the contract and, working closely with the project designer and the school’s building manager, achieved a neat, reliable heating system which has at its heart four Remeha Gas 210 Eco Pro 5-section 160kW boilers, supported by a Remeha unvented 500 litre hot water cylinder to meet the hot water demand.

Glenn Fry of Hewer FM said, “The specification was high profile with reliability, efficiency and high performance three essential requirements for this project. It was for this reason that the Remeha boilers and unvented calorifier were specified at Sir William Romney’s School.”

The refurbished heating system includes a comprehensive Building Management System control with zoned internal sensors to maximise the energy savings from the new Remeha boilers. The advanced control system also enables remote access via an iPad for monitoring and adjustment purposes, again supporting greater efficiency for lower operating costs.

Despite the evolving nature of the project, which included the removal of newly-discovered asbestos, the new heating system was successfully installed within the tight refurbishment schedule and was fully operational ahead of the start of the new term.

Lawrence Halton, Building Manager at Sir William Romney’s School said: “We are extremely pleased with our new, highly reliable heating system. The team did a great job, working hard to complete the installation within the narrow timeframe with no disruption to the existing services. Now we are looking forward to the added benefit of future energy savings, conservatively estimated to be in the region of 25 per cent upwards.”

The project team consisted of Hewer FM Ltd, Ashfield Electrical Services (South West) Ltd and Original Chimney Centres Ltd.

The Remeha Gas 210 Eco Pro Range, with individual outputs from 18 to 217 kW, offers high efficiencies and ultra-low carbon and NOx emissions for energy-saving, environmentally-friendly heating and hot water delivery. With a small footprint and the ability to be installed back-to-back, this range is ideally suited for modular configurations.
