Hitek Consultants Ltd were commissioned to provide and project manage the complete design and replacement of the heating system throughout the ‘Old Building’ over a period of seventeen weeks during the summer recess. The works were successfully sequenced to maintain the use of the building by the academics during this period.

The design involved separating the secondary pipework heating circuit serving the building from the bloomsbury heat and power primary district heating circuit, whilst maintaining return water temperatures to satisfy the needs of the central combined heat and power (CHP) plant.

The building is now heated, via low temperature hot water, by radiators throughout with room temperatures controlled via localised circuit control valves and trimmed via thermostatic radiators valves (TRV’s).
