“Remeha provided exceptional service throughout, even bringing in their technicians to support us on the project,” continued Aaron. “The first of the boilers to be installed were the Gas 610s. The Remeha team dismantled the new boilers in the basement loading area of the building, transported them up to the roof in parts, and then rebuilt them in the plantroom.”

To avoid any heating downtime, Sowga carried out a live refurbishment, disconnecting one boiler at a time and moving it to the other end of the roof to make space for the installation of the new Remeha boiler. The refurbishment also called for new pipework and flueing.

The Gas 310 Eco Pro was installed two months later in the second phase of the project. Commissioning of the boilers was carried out by Remeha.

With the refurbishment complete and the three Remeha boilers now fully operational, the building boasts more reliable, highly efficient space heating and hot water provision. For Freshfields, there is the prospect of a more comfortable building environment in the colder months ahead. And the owners of 65 Fleet Street can anticipate a significant reduction in operating costs matched by a major improvement in environmental performance.

“We specified the Remeha Gas 310/610 Eco Pro boilers due to their high efficiencies and low emissions that met the requirement for improved energy performance,” said Hilson Moran. “Their ability to be dismantled into parts was another major benefit, due to the rooftop location of the boiler plantroom. For all these reasons, they were the most suitable boilers for this project.”

Working with Hilson Moran on the project were building services engineers Sowga who won the tender procurement process.

The project presented a number of interesting challenges, as Sowga Director Aaron Guidice explained:
“Ensuring that the building and its services were unaffected during work hours meant careful planning, down to the physical logistics of bringing the new equipment into the building.”

Delivery of the new equipment had to be carefully coordinated to take place outside office hours – no mean feat given the international nature of the company.

A designated route was provided through the building during restricted hours. The project also called for zero waste to landfill, with all the old heating equipment needing to be moved out of the building outside working hours.

Access to the plantroom was in itself an obstacle, given its rooftop location. To help overcome this, Remeha’s technical team worked closely with Sowga to bring the new Gas 310/610 Eco Pro boilers into the building in the allotted timeframe.
