When you need to provide reliable heating and hot water 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for a 60-bed care home, Remeha boilers are the number one choice.

The Castleoak Group has specialised in construction and development for the care sector since 1996. To date, Castleoak has built more than 150 care homes and 3,000 apartments in extra care schemes and care villages throughout the UK for the country’s leading not-for-profit and commercial care operators. The company is at the forefront of sustainable development within the care sector, having delivered the first BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and first Passivhaus care homes in the UK.

When designing a building for the care sector, the comfort and well-being of the residents are paramount, hence the importance of reliable heating. Castleoak approached Remeha Commercial three years ago. Since then, Remeha boilers have been installed in various Castleoak care homes across the country and the robust, high performing, low NOx Remeha condensing boilers have proved reliable and energy efficient.

“Creating sustainable buildings is of increasing concern to our customers and care home investors, for both environmental and commercial reasons, as energy prices continue to rise,” said Castleoak Construction Director, Colwyn Knight.

A recent example is at Hurstwood View at Five Ash Down near Uckfield, where three Remeha Quinta Pro 115 boilers have been fitted in a space-saving cascade package to create a continuously warm, comfortable environment for the residents and endless hot water at the turn of the tap. The residents’ comfort and safety are achieved by the installation of low surface temperature radiators. A similar heating system has been installed at Plumstead Lodge in London.

At Hurstwood View, Plumstead Lodge and at other Castleoak care homes across the UK, Remeha boilers are providing economical, reliable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly heating and hot water delivery.

The Remeha Quinta Pro is a market leading, fully modulating compact gas condensing boiler with ultra low NOx and carbon emissions and high efficiency levels of 108.9% NCV at 50/30°C. It has been designed for easy and flexible installation for single or multiple configurations, and can be wall hung or installed free standing on a suitable frame, with the added options of skid mounted systems and cascade packages.
